Haha unfortunately not. Just commercial wines. Left in black shrink. Plan to fill all 130 on the left over the next 4 months though.

This is a basic mead - water and honey and yeast - with the addition of a "tea" from Halertauer hops - very noble - and fermented with a traditional Bavarian Hefeweizen yeast. The idea was to create a gluten-free beverage that is based in mead and has overtones of a Bavarian Hefewiezen beer.

Very subtle clove and banana, champagne like carbonation, very enjoyable, going to get this commercialized soon.
I love mead and hefeweizen happens to be my favorite beer. This sounds absolutely amazing. I feel like I need to try this recipe

How long did you let it age before bottling?

Chai Tea (cardamom, 2 cinnamons, star anise, cloves, Irish Breakfast Tea)
Green Tea and Lemon (Gunpowder Green Tea and 2 lemons pith removed)

I may have put too much green tea in, time will tell.
I gave them all a squeeze of honey because it was dry, will probably have to sweeten more before bottling.
Would love to hear how the Chai turns out! I love Chai tea so I will definitely have to give that one a try sometime.

Waiting is the hardest part.

For a three-gallon batch I boiled 1 gallon of water with 1.3 oz of Hallertauer for 30 min, flame out, added 5 pounds of honey, mixed well, topped with cold water to the 3-gallon mark, cooled, and pitched. OG 1.070, FG .992 ABV 8.5%, fermented for four weeks then transferred and allowed to settle for another eight weeks before force carb/kegged. We have a counter pressure bottle filler, and this bottle from the keg sat another three weeks before I opened it, and had some sediment at the bottom as it continues to clear. I am going to scale this up and make a 5-gallon batch for the fall and add a bit of clove.
