I admit I knew nothing about mead until recently, when, because of genealogy research I was doing on an ancestor who was knighted by Richard I for bravery during the Third Crusade in the 12th Century, I came across a mention of mead in family archives. Although I'd seen the word in many books over the years, I'd stupidly assumed it was some kind of weak beer. I was surprised to discover it was made from fermented honey.

For those days when even God can't stop you from having a drink!

Allah loves bees (fact), hates Christians (a pretty good guess) and specially loathes the French (doesn't everyone?).

Irritating people.

If this wasn't a fairly anonymous forum, I'd send you a bottle. My brew club does an annual "meading" where we buy a couple hundred pounds of honey. Everybody gets the same base honey. 6 months later at a club gathering, the mead comes back out for samples so you get to see the differences each person's style choice and techniques impart.

So many styles to choose from. I need to get off my butt and get that judging cert.

They were probably all straight bees... so gawd saved them.
