Some Mead is pretty good, but it's an "acquired" taste in the same way sour beers are an acquired taste. Not to say they taste anything alike, it's just one of those things you either like or you don't.Since letting my brew sit for a long period obviously isn't a problem for me, I'm tossing around the idea of making some mead. I've wanted to make some for a long time, but never followed through.
The problem is that I have no idea what mead even tastes like. I stopped by the local liquor store to buy a bottle and the only thing they carried was 'meade,' which after reading the label I found out was just white wine with spices added to recreate real mead flavor.
For those of you who have tasted mead, how would you describe the flavor?
Exactly.how do you forget about beer in a carboy? I can see tossing the dirty equip in the garage or even forgetting about some bottled beer but I cannot fathom forgetting about 5 gallons a brew in a carboy!
How does one pass medical school btw? Is it just a cram session building level upon level? I am talking more of the testing part vs the residency stuff.Medical school fellas. It's been sucking the life out of me. I'm filling my head with so much information that it's been pushing other stuff out!
I don't know. I'll tell you once I do! Seriously though, cram sessions just don't work for medical school... Well some of the serious brainiacs can manage to get through med school cramming, but most of us need to study daily (well, most every day anyhow). Besides, cramming can work for exams, but not very well for long-term retention, which is what is needed.How does one pass medical school btw? Is it just a cram session building level upon level?

To me... the greatest barrier is the barrier of entry. Getting accepted, meeting the pre-reqs and of course the cost. Other than that, its just cramming for crazy tests.
How does one study for the various tests from entry, then from craddle to grave?
I would like to lay the ground work for my kids to prepare them for med school.
I think I'll skip the hug and just say that it's very cool that things came full circle and he's not only brewing again, but stepped it up.This entire thread made my day. We covered so much ground. "Yo, I got a 2 year old beer i forgot about......has this dude tasted the beer yet........geez, taste the beer already.......vinegar with a slight hint of butt.......he now brews mead and just completed his first AG batch".
I feel like we have all grown today, group hug anyone?!!!!!!
It was completely undrinkable. I substituted powdered cloves for whole cloves, and it completely overpowered the mead. I gag even thinking about drinking this stuff. I actually popped open another bottle just last month to see if letting it sit longer would mellow it out... But it was just as bad. Oh well.So how's that mead coming along? ;-)
