6-5-18 Tonight Ryan is going to tackle one of the tougher aspects of mead making, creating a balanced end result.
Meadmaking is really about making a good balance of ingredients. Once we can produce clean mead without any faults, ( and that’s pretty easy with a little knowledge) it becomes an art form. Much like being a food master.
So we’re asking you to call us at 803-443-6323 to ask your questions on air, or join us in our live chat to tell us about your mead so Ryan can help out. There are many ways to achieve a specific desire. But everything we do interacts with the other parts of the process. So this is why it’s not easily taught, it’s an art more than a skill. But after enough understanding of how things mesh, you start to realize some of the moves we make help several things at the same time.
If you want us to tackle your mead making questions, you can send us a question 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.
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.
