What is left of my recently bottled pumpkin chai spice mead, it was my first attempt at mead, I just used fleishmanns active dry bread yeast in a 1 gallon carboy, very interesting taste, mildly sweet.

The eucalyptus honey had a mild taste from the start, so the result was a rather dry mead with a slight sweetness in the aftertaste. Not bad.

The lime honey was *very* sour and it almost tasted like lime juice and sugar. I thought this would be a complete disaster.
The end result was not what I expected. There is still a hint of the lime, but the experience was rather a freshness with a pleasant acidity. Something to be enjoyed during summer afternoons I think.
I would like a recipe to your lime mead if you are willing to share

Here's 4. Jaom, Lemon, 5 Gallon Strawberry, Dark Cherry. To right is a 5 Gallon Grafs Cider.



(Grafs is tasting so good I have to tell myself NOT to take samples) If you haven't made one, I'd highly recommend it.

Well, if you didn't already know, I saved the world from ending at the end of 2012 and took a time machine back with a glass of celebratory Cyser, which just happens to be the same Cyser I saved the world with

Let me fixed that typo...
