I believe the word you're looking for is "consumed".

My vote has nothing to do with your decision to brew this, but merely based on my observations.
I say whip it up and let us all know how it turns out, could be your next favorite.

I say go for it creamy! At the very least, because you try it, I don't have to. I like okra, but I think it's best breaded & fried, maybe with a little gravy over it. It's great in gumbo too...
But in a mead?!?

I've no clue as to what the slime will do, maybe fall to the bottom, maybe develop a self-aware intelligence. But if you liked the celery mead, you might count the okra mead as a win. Good luck if you decide to try it & let us know how it turns out.
Regards, GF.

I'd say in a gallon size go for it, I mean that is the only way to truly know. Looking at others you listed, i..e celery mead as a success ?!?! I would have never though that would taste good. If that tasted good then just about anything would be a candidate for a small batch experiment imho.
