So my wife, who just started keeping bees (yay!) was given some equipment from a colleague who just stopped keeping bees -- a neat pile of old-school gear, including a 100-year-old centrifuge.
And a big food-safe bucket. "Yeah, there's some honey in there, too," he told her. "It's a couple of years old, still good. Strain it and it'll be fine."
I looked in the shed today. And weighed the bucket -- 50 pounds at least!
... Put another way, this is Yet Another What Mead Recipe Should I Do Thread. I've got three wines and a cider going right now, one free carboy, and zero experience making OR drinking mead. Suggestions? DAOM? Something else? It's high-country wildflower honey.
