I'm originally from the States but I'm currently spending a few months
in Australia. I'd like to bring back a bit of Australian honey to make
a gallon or two of mead once I get back home. Does anyone know of some
good varietals of honey I may be able to find here which wouldn't be
available in the states? Also does anyone know if it is a problem to
get multiple pounds of honey back into the States through customs?
Thanks everyone

The acid in your stomach is Hydrochloric acid NOT sulfuric acid… doesn't
change the conclusion. 🙂
