Those new to the thread, just know that bomber and I have been ragging on each other for a while now out of a sense of fun...

because he's a tool.

Also to those new, view this YouTube video and ask yourself if Kreemy is qualified to dispense advice on anything, not limited to mead making.

If we keep this up people are going to think we aren't joking.

I wasn't being a jerk... I love bastardizing recipes! Just pointing out that when you change it.... Results change!
Maybe I am a jerk.... But it's for real.

I dunno why but everytime I see this thread show up in the newest posts I can't help but think why dear god why.
I always look for the best ingredients to make my beverages out of and this seems to be a thread dedicated to a prison brew version of mead.

I think this is a similar argument to why would you have a cheesesteak when a lovely rib-eye is available. It's a different critter, its preferable in some instances for a change, and its definitely cheaper.

This doesnt even take into account that if it werent for JAOM some people would not have gotten into the hobby at all. If you have to plunk down $100+ before you even see if you like the hobby, you might beg off.

I have a few 1/2 gallon growlers laying around so I'm thinking about making a gallon of this today.

I read the first few pages and the last couple pages looking for info on a primary and secondary. Is this just a primary fermentation and you don't transfer? Just leave it for 6-9 months? I've heard over a year is best?

True. This is by far the easiest brew you will ever make, and has very few steps or reasons to fiddle with it.
