It's mead lol. The main fermentable is honey lol.

No I haven't lol. What I did is basically steep a whole sliced cucumber and a few sliced jalapenos in hot water for thirty or so minutes. (Minus the seeds) Then remove them and stirred in the honey. Then I basically "dry hop" with chopped fresh jalapeno, no seeds, and cucumber for a week after it was done fermenting. I think I used 3.5 lbs of honey and about 5 total jalapenos and 2 cucumbers but I need to check the notes for a gallon batch.

You taste the sweet pepper with no heat and a mild cucumber flavor that adds refreshing qualities to the mead. The jalapeno is the main flavor but I notice the cucumber.

My dad and brother in law* actually liked it. I didn't back sweetened it and it has a huge jalapeno/cucumber aroma to it. Im going to make a bigger batch of it soon.

I have the same glass from your post. It says it's for whiskey but I think it's great for beer. Really concentrates the aroma.

Starting off with the basics at the moment.

2 gallons of JAOM
2 gallons of Joe's Grape Pyment
1 Blackberry JAOM (no orange or clove)
3 gallons of my friends JAOM
5 gallons of english Brown ale

Gonna do a 3 gallon batch of a proper berry mead with real yeast next and possibly a raspberry JAOM.

Cinnamon Cyser, using baking yeast. Suprisingly tasty, especially after my first experiment with baking yeast. I doubt even prison inmates would've drinked that! :P

One is fizzy, other is still.
