I just racked my first mead to the secondary. I am sure its old sauce to you all but I can't help my giddy excitement. I tasted it and it already tastes awesome! I was expecting it to taste like crap prior to aging. It took everything I had not to pour a glass. And alcohol... woo... let me tell you. It was almost like a melon liquor shot. High alcohol.

I can't wait to rack my blueberry now and I have a braggot must brewing right now...

This recipe:
4 gallon spring water
12 pounds honey
2 lemons
1 orange
Several chopped slices watermelon
Chinese green tea leaves
2 packets E1118 yeast

Congrats man! I can't wait until my first batch is ready to rack, though I guess I have to.
