So here's Christmas morning, my wife opens her case of tasty mead, and was absolutely blown away. Best present ever, 9 months in the making :-)

Awesome! Glad to hear that it went over so well!

If you have a sec, mind posting that to my facebook page? ( Celebration Generation | Facebook ) I'm running a giveaway for the next week or so - people who post photos of whatever they've made from my recipes are entered in a draw for my 2 current cookbooks, and my upcoming tornado memoir!

I just really want to encourage photo sharing. I think it inspires people to try new things, when they see what others have made!

Sort of.

Cuties is the brand name, and the are actually 2 varieties - the Clementines are the first batch, and last til around January or February. These are the "crack oranges", and what I like to use for mead.

For a couple months after February, they go to their second variety, which is a mandarin. Decent, but nowhere near as great as the clementines.

Just transferred into my secondary car boy. It's at 10.5% and climbing!!! Saved a large shot glass worth and put it in my fridge. Tastes like heaven!!!

Still don't know if I wanna make it sparkling or not. Please let me know your opinions. :-)

Looks amazing! I can only imagine the taste. Personally I wouldn't bother with making it "sparkling." but let us know either way.

Ok, I'm kinda new to mead/ wine making. This looks great though but when do you add the yeast nutrient and acid blend?
