I'm still thinking about my brew...prob putting too much thought into it. May have to watch some reruns to decide....

Kaleesi, Jon Snow, Arya, Ned Stark and Tyrion are among my favorite characters. Maybe I'll do a "in memory of Ned Stark." I don't know what
Arya is going to become because I haven't read the books but I think it will be something great.

I'm leaning towards a Pyment...with plum or pear maybe added to it. Plum and pear I have available in my area..or would if it was a growing season. A sweet traditional with a nice golden hue in spirit of the "Mother of dragons." If I had access to fireweed honey that would be fitting.

Definitely agree with the minimum OG of 1.09.

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 like! Just a thought though, you can get a jelly bag (straining bag used to make jellies and such) for like $5 and it would probably work better than coffee filters. Reusable too. Also, IIRC I think fat bloke had mentioned something about not blending the fruit because the seeds can impart a bitter taste. If that is a concern you could hit the lingenberry concentrate mixture with the jelly bag too!

Interested to see a pic and progress if you do it!

If anyone does a lannister themed mead, it really should have some edible gold flakes in it...

I'm not sure if this would even work, but what about "Milk of the Poppy?"

Dry-hop a Lactomel with some poppy seeds.

There's a recent thread on Koumiss started by Jnco_hippie. (click here)

Might be a place to start, if you dare! (I'm not ready to try a Lactomel)

Could filter a bottle of goldschlager... Hmm I think that would make any light color mead look pretty badass. Might just have to do this with my gallon of traditional orange blossom that's in the works.

David's Tea (loose leaf tea store) has a tea gold "Glitter and Gold" which makes the tea sparkle in the light. Might want to try that with a red mead?

About my recipe:
I thought the seeds bitterness would come if you added them to the mead. Another process issue I may encounter is the lingen berries (concentrate) themselves. Apparently because of benzoates in the berries, fermentation may be an issue, so I may not add the lingen juice until the end, and run all my berries in the secondary. So the ingredients will stay the same but. Primary fermentation will be 4 lbs honey, 1.5 gals water. Then process all the berries into juice as apposed to a smoothie, add that in to ferment it, then finally add the lingen concentrate.

I may be able to start this in April as I have everything but raspberries and blackberries, but can pick that stuff up any time, and I have some left over honey since my last batch was a hydromel.

Would the group consider bottling some of their batches in 12oz beer bottles and conduct an exchange? Say, 6-12 bottles? It would be most excellent to share and try other's.

If this happens I'm in!
If it doesn't, I'm probably in still. Need to do some meads either way.
