8-29-17 Tonight we’re talking with Ryan Carlson (known as Squatchy on the Gotmead Forums).
Ryan has been making mead for quite a while now. And along the way, he’s learned quite a bit as well. And one of the things he’s been talking about a lot lately is oaking mead. Oak in mead can add a ton of complexity and depth, and the methods, time and type of oak make a difference.
This is an often-discussed technique, and one that has many answers. Ryan is going to lead the discussion tonight, with the Gotmead Live Team, Manny, AJ and Hamish.
I’ll be hanging out on the board, running the tech, and chipping in from time to time, but as I’m still having breathing issues, not talking too much.
Join us for GotMead Live Chat, on Skype, live during the broadcast!! You can join us here: https://join.skype.com/sOgoU06hcV7s during the show, and we’ll pass along questions to the guest, and answer your questions!
Join us 9PM ET tonight! (8PM CT/7PM MT/6PM PT)
