My first attempt at Mead. Its a Cinnamon 'Gala' Cyser. Transfered it to the Secondary last nite and it tastes like Grade 'A' Rocket Fuel. I hope some time mellows it out, as I'm sure it will. Sorry for the double posts, I thought I messed up and it didn't post the first and now I don't know how or if I can delete it.

The left is 13 days into secondary, I call it liquid love; cinnamon ginger cyser with buckwheat honey. The right side is my youngest, 2 days into primary; cinnamon cardamom orange cyser with wildflower honey. The center lil guy is just an experiment with the wildflower honey, a cardamom pod, and a lil water.

The current gang complete with aptly novel names... from screen left to right:

(1) No. 1 Nectar; my first short gallon mead after stabilising it, then cold crashing it in the freezer, and finally adding positive and negative finings. (Currently bottled in some recycled Leffe and Grolsch bottles, one of which I've added cinnamon and vanilla extract).

(2) Mr. Bungle (named because my housemates and I had a fantastically tortuous time trying to rescue my closed bung from the demijohn when shaking the must); my second gallon mead chocked full of about 4lbs (~1,900g) of honey, and

(3) Wizard's Socks; my ghettotastic half gallon brew of fly agaric and lemon infused mead (named because of the day or so I left the ingredients to stew in muslin stockings before adding the honey and preparing the must).

First off, awesome names. Secondly, I would be incredibly cautious about consuming fly agaric in any form, let alone in conjunction with alcohol. Could be a Darwin Award in the making, right there...

+1

They are great if you wanna trip or whatever, but they affect different people VERY differently. One person could hallucinate and the next could fall over in a fit of seizures. Make sure and warn anyone that is drinking it that it's not just alcohol.
