10-30-18 Episode 123! Dang, they’re piling up! We’re back from a week off, because Vicky ran off to DisneyWorld last week (and found mead there!!).
This week, Ryan is back again, and wants to talk about creating your own mead recipes. Probably the most asked question on the Gotmead Forums and the many mead social media groups is ‘do you have a recipe for xxx’.
Yeah, we do. But you’ll never be able to make the same mead as us, because there are differences in regional honey, fruits, spices, etc. No two meads are exactly alike. But that’s ok, Ryan is going to help you to figure out how to put together flavors you like or hear about, and create a mead recipe that will get you a solid mead, every time.
This is a core meadmaking skill, creating your own recipes. Once you’ve got this down, the sky is the limit!
Click the chat link below to join us live, and ask questions for Ryan and the team. See you online!
This player will show the most recent show, and when we’re live, will play the live feed. If you are calling in, please turn off the player sound, so we don’t get feedback.
If you want us to tackle your mead making questions, you can send us a question via email, or via Twitter @GotmeadNow and we’ll tackle it online!
9PM EDT/6PM PDT
Bring your questions and your mead, and let’s talk mead! You can call us at 803-443-MEAD (6323), or Skype us at meadwench (please friend me first and say you’re a listener, I get tons of Skype spam), or tweet to @gotmeadnow.
