9-20-16 – Today we’re talking with Jeremy Kyncl, owner of Hierophant Meadery in Mead, WA. Jeremy and his wife Michelle have a background in herbs and are focused on local-sourcing their mead ingredients and creating a uniquely local product.
They love the ‘back-to-nature’ aspects of mead making, and all the nuances that plants can add to the mix at various stages of growth. We expect to see some unique meads from them!
On Back to Basics, Jeremy will be staying on to talk with AJ, Manny, Hamish and I about metheglins. Adding spices and plants to meads is a tradition that goes back as far as mead has been recorded, and the options are limitless. We’ll be talking about what works, techniques and some interesting flavor combinations.
Join us 9PM ET tonight! (8PM CT/7PM MT/6PM PT)
