Well, I tasted my first mead Monday. It is very orangey, sweeter than I expected, and warms the belly on the way down. Not bad, considering I forgot all the spices for JAOM except the clove. Does the warming sensation to away with age? Will the sweetness lessen at all since the fermenting is done? And on a side note: I did JAOM again for my second batch. This time I remembered everything except the clove. I should practice that whole forethought thing.

How old is that first batch you tasted? aging does mellow out the alcohol heat aspect of it, but a JAOM by design is pretty sweet. There are ways to dry it up more like additional yeast and such.
