Forgive me if this topic has been discuss previously.

Living in SW Virginia and being limited in travel, I personally never had the opprotunity to sample Meads, other than my own. I have no idea how good, or how bad, my Mead is, in comparison to other Meads.

At least in my case, the actual sampling of your Mead may be the best learning experience.

Is it possible, and is there an interest in having a Mead exchange?

Sorry, I live in CA. Is exchange by shipping an option?

You might want to try kwmeads.com and take a look at all their commercial meads.

I'm into trying it. I just bottled a dry Blueberry Melomel which is quite good for 9 months, about 6 months in the bottle will make it just right. I also have a Ginger mead which looks like it may be awsome in a few months, its crystal clear and tasted quite good at bottling. My cysers are a few months away from bottling and my pyment has about 6 months in the carboy and a few rackings. Marion PM me if you want to go for it.

I'm game. For all that are interested, let's set a date to swap one sample. How does the first week of August sound? What size sample?
