The NewBee Guide was written in 2006 by Angus, then a very active member of the GotMead forums, and a new, but avid, meadmaker. Angus developed several recipes that turned out pretty awesome, and the NewBee Guide was his very kind gift to GotMead to help other new meadmakers to learn our wonderful craft.
In 2018, Bray Denard, creator of Bray’s One Month Mead (BOMM), updated the guide to add new knowledge that had been gained since 2006.
I have brought the NewBee Guide over to our new site, and will be making updates, corrections and expansions to it. If you have ideas on how we can make the NewBee Guide better, drop me a line.
