As promised: Bochet, to be bottled shortly. Poured tasting from a hydrometer sample.



One of the best I've made so far.

Just saves you from having to convert it. You'd have to boil the sap down to remove the water they just do it for you.

Again, we're talking about different things. My mead's a birch sap mead, not a birch syrup mead.

Just birch sap, honey and yeast.

Oh yeah I understand, but for most of us we can't get the sap so a syrup has to be used instead. Which is just the sap with the h2o removed. And you could replace a large portion Of the honey with the birch syrup.

"What do meads taste like?"

Simple question, difficult answer, and not really related to this thread.

Mead is wine made from honey, so it tastes like honey wine.

The thing is, mead is an open canvas of flavor. Ken Schramm's Compleat Mead Maker is a terrific read. You should also visit gotmead.com and peruse the newbie guide.

Spices, fruits, varietal honeys, yeasts, age, oak, temperature... so many things affect flavor...it's like describing what chicken tastes like.

It's wine. To me, it's delicious. It's also a rewarding hobby.

I really hope more and more people get into making it. I want to see mead become mainstream and respected like grape wine. If you have a meadery nearby, support them!

What Zaffo said! The possibilities are immense. For example, I recently experimented with a simple mead but using the Bavarian Weihenstephan hefe yeast strain to ferment. Amazing, nice banana clove much like the beer version and gluten free. Welcome to the world of Meadmaking!
