It was sweet, with clear floral tones from the honey.

Playing with some led's in the fermentation and aging room, three one gallon batches at various stages. L to R, blueberry/lavender test recipe, yerba chai blend metheglin and a Jaom about ready for bottling (I like to go into a secondary for a couple days first just incase some more stuff likes to settle out)

All my meads were only started this month. Looking forward to a good winter!!

Big carboys from left to right:

-Tupelo Honey Mead. Simple traditional mead.. around 12lbs of honey, Lalvin D47
-My very first Braggot... sort of a medium wheat grain bill, some tettnanger hops, and 10lbs of local wildflower honey
-Not mead. Nice beer that should be similar to a Kilt Lifter.

1 gallon jugs from left to right:

-Raspberry Vanilla Melomel.
-Caramel Apple Cyser. Made this as a birthday present for my wife.
-Spiced Pumpkin Cyser. Hoping it'll be drinkable by Thanksgiving.

Ancho Chili Capsicumel. Sweet mead with awesome mouthfeel, peppery nose, and a nice spicy kick to finish it off.

Summersolstice's recipe here:

I replaced all the honey except for the buckwheat with local wildflower honey. I just racked it on to the vanilla beans a couple days ago.

So this is everything I've got right now that isn't out in the deep storage. In order:

Kiwi (with Strawberry!) Wine that's currently bulk aging and settling down.

B+B+B Mead- Blueberry, Blackberry and Banana. That's one of the topping bottles as I just transferred it off the fruit. If it fully clears, should be fun.

Raspberry Mead- Bottled around 9 months ago. Wonderful nose on it, though not quite as much taste of raspberry as I was expecting.

My first mead - a minor variation of Joe's Ancient Orange Mead (no cinnamon or cloves). It's a little over two months old at this point and has just be racked into its secondard home. Not too terribly clear but it's been fun for a first shot!
