Default Melo-Meth Pics


Here are the pictures of the one I made a couple years ago...this is what it has always looked like (but I didn't back sweeten it-wish I had a little)...

weird though...I swear it was more red than that (almost certain it looked more like my blueberry mead)...I just went to verify I pulled from the right box and unless I was drunk labeling two boxes...this is what my melo-meth looks like after a couple years...

I have a batch in secondary right now and I meant to take some pictures last week and post them. I will do that today. I have never had mine turn out as light as KnightRyder's pics. Mine always looks much more like cranberry juice. I has a deep red-purple color.

Just started a batch of this. cant wait for the holidays to drink this.

just one slight question for those that have brewed this. I did a 3 gal batch with 9# of honey and didnt have to add any water to get to the 3 gal mark, is that normal?

not concerned just curious

I just started a batch of this.

I'm just under 5 gallons and used 1 gallon of yaupon holly honey.
I don't have any allspice berries, but I did toss in about 1/4 of a crushed nutmeg.
