Created a "Braggot" today by blending the Sweet Mead and IPA I have conditioning. Damn, it is quite good! Braggot -- it's not just for breakfast anymore!

Very nice, have not yet brewed one. Is it usually blended or is there a more traditional way? I just tried a half gal batch of apple carrot cyser.

I blended mine today just to give the flavors a try, but traditionally it is a combination of beer & mead ingredients which are fermented together (essentially a mix of wort & must). Took 1 liter to an afternoon gathering and came back with it empty so others liked it too.

I like the idea of keeping a basic mead around and blending with other interesting things as they become available (like seasonal fruit). And apparently this is not entirely without traditional precedent.

Brewed a small test batch of cider last year from local apples and a cyser is definitely on my list to try as well.

sure, in this forum if you go down about 20 topics below this one there is a thread called" strawberry rhubarb need recipe input" it has a diary of me making this batch. I have only made it 1 time so far and have not finished aging yet. I think it's gonna turn out pretty good though judging by the way it tastes right now. I am still adjusting the recipe so if you try it I would be interested in feedback and how it turned out as well as any adjustments you made
I would send you a link to that page but I haven't figured out how to do that on my phone yet

I uploaded some pics into the gallery here, now to see if I can get them to show here.

First should be: left to right: beer, very first mead, then 4 bottles of 2nd mead (raspberry, vanilla, raspberry, traditional)


My first mead in bottles (same as in the pic above)


My 3rd mead - Black Cherry. Just racked off of the fruit.
