So my "Mother of Dragons" capsi-melomel mead is still actively rocking the airlock. We are now a day short of 2 whole weeks. Smells great! Raspberry with a spicy kick. I look forward to sampling hydrometer samples.

I am probably a little late to the party but want to start dabbling with meads. What about something dedicated to the Red God, R'hllor. Maybe something with Cinnamon and Chili peppers? And maybe something to give it a ruby-reddish hue?

Feel free to steal the idea, I am sure I will not be able to make a balanced mead on my first several attempts and will bow to those more experienced than myself.

I for sure want to exchange with you, if willing.

I'm sure that can be arranged.

Say hello to the Dornish pomegranate mead, made with raw Cricket Farm desert-blossom (mesquite) honey,POM wonderful juice, and ec-1118 at about 15.6%ABV and entering its secondary. Now just needs a cooler name... suggestions?

I, for one, think "Dornish pomegranate mead" is a great name!

Need to design labels for the Khaleesi Capsumel and found a couple of bits of art to consider for the base/background (proper credit and permission willing) or to maybe just use as inspiration to do my own art thing. I like the second one for its iconic simplicity.

That would be a cool label. So is Khaleesi with a boob hanging out.
