1-10-17 Tonight we’re back from our holiday vacation!! We hope you all had a great holiday, and a fun New Year!
We’ll be talking with Rob Ratliff. Those of you who listen to the show might remember we had him on earlier in the year on Back to Basics. Rob is an intuitive mead recipe designer, and his meads are top notch. (He’s also a good friend!).
Rob decided to put his recipes, and his skills, into a book, The Big Book of Mead Recipes. It comes out on Kindle this month, followed by a trade paperback, and later this quarter, a fold-flat spiral bound edition with blank ruled pages for notes.
Rob packed his book with over 60 recipes in all the mead styles, and there are some pretty good ones in there!
Rob is also going to stay on with us and talk about Polish style meads. Rob makes an amazing Polish mead, so good that the largest meadery in Poland was stunned to drink it and were very complementary (meaning I thought they were going to hire him right there!).
NEW!! Join us for GotMead Live Chat, on Skype, live during the broadcast!! You can join us here: https://join.skype.com/sOgoU06hcV7s during the show, and we’ll pass along questions to the guest, and answer your questions!
