I just realized that this thread might have been the death-knell for my advice column thread. Guess no one wants to ask advice of a man who would drink okra mead.

It's not the drinking of it that will do it in but the making of it.

I think it is commendable. You risked drinking warm boot to prove to everyone that experimenting is a crap shoot that can yield amazing or in this case... less than desireably slimy results.

You should do a whole series where you make mystery meads and you and your friend taste them and offer detailed tasting notes.

Do it. You will or won't be disappointed. Just document and share and for the brew gods sake post a tasting video.

I just want to remind you all to think out of the box and follow your dreams. The sky is the limit. If you set your mind to it... you too can make a vomitous slime-slick.

I still want to try an asparagus pilsner. Any of you who can lager please send some my way for a taste test.
