Ya...Pretty much everyone has tried it.

We call it JOAM....Malkore has a more refined version....and Yooper Posted the orig. Try it...You'll either like it...or at least you'll learn the fun of mead.

What BK said! I went with Malkore's version instead mainly because using bread yeast just doesn't sit well with me.

Yup, a very well known recipe by a very well known man. I have made 3 versions of it already in a year's time.

Well it is JAOM, a lot of people that already are in brewing don't want to use bread yeast. Its a cheap, lesser alternative to good brewer's yeast. All of my 3 batches, etc the first, was made with brewer's yeast.

All and all this is just a updated version, with better yeast and nutrient and energizer to make a better mead while still being easy.
