...and has anyone done a good "shade of the evening mead"? ya know, something to turn your lips blue and your mind soft. Perhaps a blueberry melomel with high ABV?

Hey all!

I'm so excited to see this thread! I manage a Game of Thrones brewing blog (www.gameofbrews.com), and would love to have some new folks toss ideas around! My favorites so far have been a red apple wine, and a heather ale.

I'd trade a bottle..think I can fedex from Canada? I just did a straight wildflower honey mead. Never just tasted the basics! It's clearing right now and going to rerack one more time..hopefully bottle in a month or so. I'm planning to bottle in 375 ml

I'm about to start another one..since I wasn't too creative the first time maybe ill try this time. So far for my next mead I have a can of vinters harvest cherry and will be using wildflower honey again...rerack on some black cherries maybe
? Gonna brainstorm a couple more ingredients. I can never pinpoint my favorite characters or areas in Game of Thrones...think I'm too busy keeping up with it all!

For those interested I had a recipe for a Red Wedding mead at the beginning of the thread. I ended up doing something from book 5 so its up for grabs.

The Red Wedding

4 lbs honey
1.5 cups raspberries
3 cups blackberries
2 cups lingenberry concentrate
2 cinnamon sticks
2 cloves
Water to 1.5 Gallons
Half teaspoon pectic enzyme
Pasteur red yeast

Dissolve honey in room temp water. In a clean and sanitized blender add lingen concentrate and berries (leave out 2 cups of blackberries). Blend to a very fine smoothie. Add smoothie to must and move must to fermenting bucket. Bring level to 1.5 gallons and pitch yeast. Ferment to completion in bucket. Rack as much as possible to 1 gal carboy excluding fruit paste and lees and store extras for topping off. With the blackberries, blend them and run pulp through coffee filters to strain pulp. Age to clear.

I saw somebody talking about Greyjoy mead made on seawater, so I made it. Just a small batch and actually not a real mead (the bees wasn't ready to let us harvest the honey yet)

But I collected some gallons of Baltic seawater and started.

1.7 L distilled seawater
150 g sugar
4 g lemon zest
Juice of half a lemon
14 ~ 1.54 g juniperus
6 ~ 0.18 g staranis seed
1.02 g dry rosemary
0.68 g dry bay leaves
10 ~ 0.35 g black pepper corn
1.5 teaspoon peppermint essenes

I gave it some port wine yeast i had harvest from a apple mead

My OG is 1028

I'm thinking let it fermenting for about two weeks, then remove the spices, split the batch in two, ad about 250 g of sugar to the one part, collect some stones from the beach, heat them up and throw them in the part of the batch witch the extra sugar, let it stand to it is cool and mix the two together again for a couple of weeks and see what happened.

Hope my English is understandable, I have dyslexia and English is not my first language

haha I also mentioned the distilled seawater, but not a recipe. I'd love to try that one just for curiosities sake.

It's going to be a long year aging my Cheese-monger's reserve. I may be adding more grapes and some oak soon. The pears really didn't do anything.

Edit: Also watch out that those stones are dry. Heating wet stones can cause them to blow up.

I was soon thereafter contemplating a mead to do it justice. Still thinking on it but I like the name "Red Wedding Mead"

the only mead to do it justice would contain milk of the poppy, in large quantities.
