Welcome to the Board Icegator!

I hope you find this place informative and helpful in your meadmaking endeavours! I also hope your jump into joining will encourage other "lurkers" (I lurked for a while myself before registering) to do the same.

Remember, Wherever you go, there you are!

Later gator!



Thanx to all of you for the welcome!!

@ Vicky, I like your world, great place to be! So you’re the web wench eh? Are you saucy as well?

@ Oskaar, yes, this place is EXTREEMLY informative and helpful and my mead making has become a necessity due to my endless thirst for the nectar. My Da , brother and Uncle have been brewing for years and I used to get my Dad to make me mead when he could, but he’s finally had it with me because I consume it quicker than he can make it (LOL), so he loaded me up with the equipment to get started, so here I am.

@ Joe, I appreciate the welcome and I’m far from shy, just lurking to get up to speed with the rest of you vets. But anywhooo, it’s about time to knock off of work (mead:30 to me), so I’m homeward bound because there is mead to make, and mead to drink……..and well like I said, there’s mead to drink. 8)
