9-18-18 We’re headed up to Pennsylvania tonight, to talk with Scott Neeley, head meadmaker at Kingview Meadery.
Scott has been making mead since 2011, and did a lot of work at it, until he began to enter competitions in 2015. He has since picked up a number of medals, and a couple BoS medals. He ended up starting a meadery after visiting a number of meaderies around PA and OH, and as a man of German descent, and a lover of bees, felt it was the right move for him to make.
Scott is adamant about using cold fermenting, and fresh ingredients, having decided not to employ flavorings. Currently, they have 19 meads available, several of which have taken medals in large competitions, including one at the Mazer Cup.
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 and we’ll tackle it online!
9PM EDT/6PM PDT
