Decided to give Joe's Ancient Orange another try.  First attempt (about a year ago) resulted in a Meadplosion.  Must have been alot of pressure for orange chunks to hit the ceiling after the airlock plugged up…live and learn i guess…after that, the batch never did seem right….

 Approx 3.5 lbs wildflower honey

large orange, cut into eighths

1 stick of cinnamon

1 clove

approx 25 raisins

1 teaspoon Fleismanns bread yeast


Starting with clean equipment, mixed all ingredients.  Added yeast when at room temp.

Bubbling nicely in approx 3 hours.  No plugged airlock…yet….
