I would suggest having mead for the premier of the new season of Game of Thrones. I know I will have the mead and the goblets all set.
I got drinking horns...

The wife wont let me bring horns into the house. I think I poo'ed in that well when I started harvesting pork shoulder bones.

Such a shame... really nice brewer had one set aside for me and everything.

If its just one horn already set aside for you... Do it anyway... She'll forgive you. :-)

easier to ask forgiveness than it is to ask permission

Personally I can drink gallons of JAOM just by myself.
But also keep in mind that any wine you make with sugar can be made with honey and then some. Not everything you make with honey can be made with sugar.
Not everyone likes JMAO as-is. Even tried others, still said 'ick'. But I still make plenty of mead that I enjoy. And I still make JMAO each year, hoping I hit the jackpot as it ages.

Fair enough, personal preferences are just that. However, my main point is that MAKING a JAOM as your first mead is a healthy exercise, as it gives you some experience and an idea of what you do and do not like about mead. An experienced beer/wine brewer could make JAOM, taste it, and alter/fiddle accordingly. Crawl before you walk, and get tipsy at the same time, as it were... :-)

JOAM is a great place to start. I tried original recipe and then my modified (zesting, no pith, D47). I like original better at this point. I suspect I didn't pay too much attention to temp control with the D47. But the process was addictive and kept me reading and thinking how to improve. I surprised myself (and others) with how well the Blueberry turned out which then got me working on bigger and better things. But, like Saramc, I'm going to keep fiddling with a JOAM to see if I can hit the sweat spot (pun intended).
