1-15-19 Part 2 of Mead Myths, because we had so many that came up from our listeners last week! Ryan, Vicky and AJ will be talking about the myths that have arisen on techniques in meadmaking, they pervade a lot of the internet and are passed around by people not aware that they are myths.

Yes, mead is old as people, and yes, it has a long history (we’re having a show on mead history next month), but we also have science, and as science has advanced, we’ve discovered or proven many things about fermentation, and specifically about making mead that lend a great deal of help to making better mead, and in allowing us to repeat our efforts.

So we’ll be tackling the myths, some much beloved, and showing the science that gives us reliable, repeatable methods we can use to make better mead.

What are some of the myths you’ve discovered in your quest to make better mead?
