I was thinking about doing a mead. Just wondering what is the average ABV?

12% to 25% or better depending on the amount of honey used. Some recipes are small and quick with 3#s per gallon up to some real biggies at 5#s per gallon.

On Tap -
  1. 3 year old Oak Aged Bourbon Porter
  2. Irish Red Rye
  3. Robust Porter
  4. Russian Imperial Stout
  5. Mirror Pond Clone dry hopped with Citra
  6. Mirror Pond Clone dry hopped with Centennial

Just remember the higher the ABV the longer the ageing needed - Mead (like 'country' wine) can't be rushed
