Happy new year everyone, let's get this show on the road and see if we can make it to 1000 this year.

Kickin' off the new year with 6 gallons of Rolanberry Mead. It's a fruit combination recipe from Final Fantasy XIV that I'm attempting to create for my wife based on the official cookbook she is in love with. Essentially, it is Cherry, Raspberry and Strawberry combined with some lemon.

6 gallons, Let's Go!

You go boy. I'll be interested in hearing about your black briar melomels. Is that blackberries? And Mandarin Orange is one of the best I have ever made. And your Valheim sounds delicious.

Yeah, the Blackbriar is from the Elder Scrolls cookbook. Their mead making methods are very bad (I've learned to not follow them at all), but the recipes are very good. Blackbriar is in the Skyrim game (and possibly other TES games) and it is blackberries, cloves, cinnamon and rose hips. I scaled it up from one gallon to five gallons, except for cloves and cinnamon stick, which I'll be incrementally increasing as taste demands, to avoid overdoing those flavors. The gallon I made last year was a hit at Christmas, so I'm hoping to age most of this for next Christmas.

The Mandarin mead is mandarin oranges on orange blossom honey. Hoping to make it a session mead like an alcoholic orange crush.

The Valheim mead isn't mine, I can't really take credit for it. It's my second time making it though, since I enjoyed it the first time around.

2 gallons Short, Peppermint Metheglin, Braggot BOMM.

Same recipe as my last short metheglin, just swapping the Tension Tamer out for the peppermint and reduced the steeped light crystal by half to 1oz/G.

31.5 + 2 = 33.5
