Default Hard core mead or ?

You've seen my labels (if not check out my gallery) . . . Well I'm making a mead should I stick with the same hard edged no BS labels or should I make something a little softer and more cuddly for this stuff?

Hard core baby.

Think Thor, think Hammer of the Gods... Think "Mead Nectar of Barbarians"

I don't know why mead is thought of as soft. I like it between around 20%, if it ain't aged it feels like it's taking the enamel off your teeth.

To be really truthful, you'll have to calculate how much is rotted & how much is just bee vomit ...
Good though.

well I should end up with 1-3% of the honey unfermented so . . . if I round up 15lbs still work. If my math is correct should have .45lbs of unfermented honey left if it leaves 3% of it unfermented
