Hey all, I've just begun my forray into mead making and currently have 4 1 gallon batches going including 2 JAOM, 1 Dandelion Wine, and 1 Dandelion Mead. All have been started about a week apart, I figure the more I have going now the more I'll have to drink and age while I still drink later.
With that in mind, I figure it's about time to try out a show mead. I plan on making this one pretty sweet using 3 1/2 lbs of honey for a gallon batch.
The honey I plan on using is colorado wildflower honey under the name of "Ambrosia" by Madhava. Supposedly the honey is from wildflowers that grow at high elevation. It is quite tasty, not too powerfull, but certainly not delicate, with a bit of a spicy taste to it. I've been eating it for a while and after discovering mead thought it might make an interesting tasting mead. So why not?
Anyways, any advice for show meads, I know they do not use any addatives and was wondering if any more experienced members had advice on making show meads? Thanks!
If this is successfull I think my next mead will be a bochet
, followed by a polish style mead.
