    Liquid Nitrogen

    Carmel Mead

    I was contemplating a Peach mead with spirimint in it. Only I don't have much experience with mints. I was planing on using the leaves rather than an extract as I like to keep it more pure. Extracts are actually made by using alcohol to bring out the flavor. Only I don't know how many leaves...
