[QUOTE=Kmcogar;5312280]I just bottled my first mead. I used the zork corks. They look good and are super easy to put in. I got some labels off grogtag.com. Everything turned out really good!


Looks Great, I live in Maryland Too! out by Mt. Airy but I work in Glenelg.

Im curious about the honeydew wine. I remember in Ken schramms book that honey-dew was honey from aphid piss or something like that. Also, those all look pretty tasty, especially the strawberry.

I've been lurking for a month or two now and figured I needed to get a shot of my latest batch loaded up. I started making mead last November. My second batch is just about ready to bottle (probably this weekend) and I'm looking forward to enjoying the first bottle around Halloween. Both batches have been cysers, heavy on the honey, and using the sweet mead yeast from Wyeast. Came out great, just what I was hoping for - a sweat mead with a decently heavy apple flavor and respectable ABV (13%). I reduced the apples and the honey in the second batch, but carmelized the honey a little, so I'm curious how this next one will taste. I'm going to have to start making more (again, already) since it seems quite popular with friends... It has disappeared at a startling rate (not that *I* would have drank all that much...lol!).

I backsweetened the honeydew last night just waiting a day or to to make sure it doesn't start fermenting again... The sample I took taste like it will be great on a hot southern summer day, maybe serve over ice... I'm ready to bottle I may but a few in beer bottles to share with friends

Selection of meads and ciders. Plus my latest bottled Sweet candy mead which I named after the smell.

I'm kind of interested in the sweet candy mead. Do you have a recipe?
