This is so disgustingly amazing. I'm honestly surprised on how something like this could taste good at all :P

I had a great conversation in person with the OP today. We talked a bit about this recipe...now I've gotta try it (and the cheese)!

I'm adding this to the list of recipes I have to try. I like anything that's outside the ordinary.

We got married yesterday, and figured this was just about time to open the last bottle of the origional milk-mead from the first post.

It has wonderful clarity.
The taste is very orange & citrus... acidic. Lactic acid I think?
Still smooth and silky with hints of yogurt.
I wonder if this would benifit from a malolactic culture?

The mead was a lemon-orange mead to start with and showed no signs of infection so I believe the acidity is simply a result of the citrus fruit.

As a fan of sour beers, perhaps I am influenced, but I really like this mead!

I think I was a little too aggressive with my aeration, too much foam....

Scrape some of that off, and add some vanilla to it.

I tried making a one gallon batch of this. Just had my first taste and the verdict is... interesting.

I agree with that. I don't know if mine didn't turn out properly but it definitely has a.... sour taste? I'm going to let it sit in the bottle for 6 months and see if it gets any better...

Default What about goats?

Anyone know how goat's milk would work with this? I know it's often a good candidate for lactose intolerants. I try to stick with as traditional an approach as possible for my brews, so would like to avoid adding lactaid stuff if possible!

Definitely giving this one a try when my carboys are empty. Thanks for the great conversation!
