Default Skyrim and Mead

Am I the only one on this forum that plays video games and is really excited to see the prevalence of mead in the new Elder Scrolls V Skyrim? Hell, you can even visit a meadery. It's one of the first few buildings you pass after you escape the first dragon.


And who knew mead would replenish your stamina but slow it's replenishment ;D . I'm not gonna lie, I'm proud to be a mead home brewer. Hopefully with the huge presence mead has in Skyrim and the game's popularity amongst a large and widely set age bracket for its player basis there will be a spike in the interest for mead creation and consumption in the general public.

I'm thinking about making a special Skyrim batch. Maybe it'll be done by the time I beat the game :P

There's a whole thread on Skyrim already in general chit chat.

I would be interested in that! Using a large number of spices and what not that could be found in Skyrim.

I think some Vampire Dust would be wonderful. Maybe a little gritty. But you should be able to use garlic to increase clarity.

Ya the day I got the game I broke out a few bottles of my mead. It was awesome. If someone comes up with a recipe I would love to get a whole group to do a skyrim mead

This caught my eye and I just wanted to say, I just started brewing beer (2 brews so far) and have always had and interest in mead and will be brewing some soon (when I can find a cheap source of bulk honey). Also I love video games and have been playing Skyrim a bit and along with loving the game itself I really like them working in the meadery's. I always keep a good supply of mead and ale in the game. Happy brewing and gaming to you.

P.S. while walking around (I believe Windhelm) I heard an NPC talking about a Mead with Juniper berries. This might be a good Skyrim Mead. I myself always thought I would do one with Pomegranate juice.

Unfortunately I haven't got that far. I'm only a level 8 right now, and have only joined the Mage's guild. (sort of by accident) I work road construction, and would normally be layed-off right now and have poured hundreds of hours into the games of this fall, but we are too busy servicing the Marcellus gas industry all winter Sadly, it may take me years to get through Skyrim at this rate. I was also looking forward to brewing a 20% IPA that would need all kinds of attention, but haven't had the time to do that either. Since I do want to do a mead, do you have any good recipe's? I think I'm just going to stick with a pretty basic one to start out, and I want to do a really sweet mead. I know I don't want to back sweeten.

This game is making me tap into my mead stock more often than usual.

I just wish I had a tankard to drink out of instead of a glass mug. I'm working on a recipe for a skyrim mead if anyone wants to join. Most likely with juniper berries since that is one of the first things you hear in the game.
