Good god man that is vile! At least you manned up to the plate and tried it though. I probably would have thrown in the towel after realizing how much slime was involved.

It was rather unpleasant. On one occassion in my teens I ate a raw egg to see what it was like. This was like that, but less neutral.

I think the only thing to do now is to out-gross yourself with another experimental brew. Something way out there. Think outside the box. Maybe something like shrimp-shell mead.

The worst part of the slime is that it seperates from the rest of the liquid. If that werent the case, I would say that it... in MINISCULE amounts, would make a fine clarifying agent or add body (like the old put a banana in secondary trick).

If anyone is willing to try putting... say... one pod in a whole gallon of mead, I would be interested in seeing the results.

Im not so interested in trying it myself.

It would appear that no one is taking me seriously.
