Not sure what you mean by "condensed mead." By any chance, is it distilled mead, i.e., mead brandy that you're talking about?

Re: Condensed mead

He called it condensed,he said to let air get to it so it dried out,it was about the consistancy of honey but could tell by taste it was mead,meant for pouring on your lover,so you could lick it off

Re: Condensed mead

This thread should probably be in the Hive. But, I do like the concept ;). I think I'll experiment ;D

Re: Condensed Mead

Sorry all -- I'm taking the liberty of shifting this thread to the Hive since replies to this post are going to go, well . . .

Fenris, I think your friend was pulling your leg. Removing the water from a mead is only going to leave a powdery residue.

My suggestion would be to take a quantity of honey, add sufficient mead to retain the right consistency but make the taste more interesting, then apply as was originally suggested.

Folks -- keep in mind this is a public forum. Your spouse/partner/et. al. may be reading your replies to this post! ;D
