Dray (pictured right) liked the idea of mead so much that he tossed some honey my way so I could get a batch started. I’ve talked about getting into mead for years, so this encounter with Dray was a welcome kick in the backside, because this will help me produce something special that is in line with Michelle’s new gluten-free status and because I have a local source for free honey.
Last night, I set aside the time to put my first batch into the fermenter. What a good day! Dray provides the honey, I make the mead, and we both enjoy the fruit of the bees labor.
Do you know your local beekeeper? As I found, it may pay off to introduce yourself.
Do you have a great mead recipe? I wouldn’t turn down any advice you sent my way.
