Just thought it would be cool to see some of the odd stuff you have all made.

Subscribing to this because I am curious too, but have just started making mead so don't really have anything to add. I suppose, my strangest batch going would have to be my bochet but after reading all the threads on it it just doesn't seem that strange anymore.

Honeysuckle sounds really cool. How did you process them? Steep the flowers?

Yes. The flowers were really putrid afterwards. I was thinking all along that there was no way this was going to work. I last tasted it about 3 months ago and it actually tasted like Honeysuckle!

I followed the first recipe here...

The main problem is that I did not freeze it, because I did it in a better bottle. I took a large tub of natural cream cheese, and scooped it all into the primary. Than I added four gallons of strawberry juice, and two pounds of dexatrose. The yeast pitch was Montrachet. Fermented at around 70F for 4 weeks, than racked to secondary for another month before I gave it a taste.

It tasted good, but the cream cheese added a really sour flavor. I contribute this to it starting off at room temperature, and the fermentation being so warm. I plan to try it again the same way, but this time in an ale pale with frozen cream cheese, at around 60F, racking to a secondary again after a month.


I have been toying with the idea of fermenting urine.
