Pete has been making mead for over 30 years, and is also a trained winemaker, with education from U.C. Davis, and a family tradition of winemaking that goes back generations. I guess you could say he has some experience!
Tonight Pete comes on with us to talk about competitions. What’s going on with them, some of the background and behind the scenes efforts, and insight into what makes a competition tick. This is a must-listen if you run a comp, or are thinking about creating or entering one!
Click the chat link below to join us live, and ask questions for Pete!
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.
