A long ago homebrewer here. Last batch was somewhere in the late 2000's. 2008 or 09. I've gravated away from beer over the years to wine and hard liquor. I have some brews every now and then. I stumble upon the CS mead folks on YouTube a week or so ago. It became a rabbit hole of renewed interest in homemade alcohol. It seems so much less involved than beer. I was intrigued with the small batches. I've acquired seven 1 gallon glass jugs and a 3 gallon fermonster. I was going to try a BOMM but the homebrew store was out of 1388. I reluctantly purchased the white lab version (570?) as well as d47 and some Red Star the homebrew shop recommended. And a White Lab yeast for mead. For the honey I picked up some raw Texas wildflower honey from the local grocery store. My intention are to start one with Fleischmann's and see how it goes. I did pick up all the required nutrients for the BOMM method. I even scored a free box of 12 grower bottles while at the homebrew shop. Someone dropped them off that day because they were moving. In a wooden box too. I found some orange blossom honey online as there's no local source and I've yet to cultivate any relationship with the local honey bee keepers. I'll likely stick to 1 gallon batches till I find a winner. Then I'll knock out a 5 gallon batch. Maybe by then I'll make it into the garage attic to get the bigger brewing equipment. I'm not sure how this store bought honey will turn out. I'll find out soon.
