11-20-18 We’re continuing our exploration of mead recipes and flavor profiles this week. We asked in the GotMead Group on Facebook and on the Gotmead Page for some flavor profiles that people would like to try to create. We’re going to spend tonight working on them, and seeing what we can come up with to help with creating recipes for those flavor profiles.
Get your Flavor Bibles out, and join us on the live chat as we explore creating particular flavor profiles in mead.

- Matt Mead – Faygo Rock and Rye and chocolate peppermint
