10-24-17 We’re baaaaccckkkk! We took a 2 week break, and are back talking mead, this week with Jason Todd Phelps, owner of Ancient Fire Mead and Cider, and award winning mead maker.

Jason has been around the block for many many years and has won countless awards with all things fermented. It seems fitting that tonight we should talk about cysers since it’s apple season in many parts of the US. Cysers are mead made with apples. As simplistic as this sounds, in my opinion this is one of the more difficult categories in mead making. So many factors need to come together at just the right point to have a great, well balanced, complex cyser that can go well beyond a fermented Martinelli’s. So it’s a privilege to hear from Jason tonight on his approach to making award winning cysers.
