2-6-18 We’re continuing showcasing speakers for the AMMA Conference next month with Carvin Wilson. Carvin will be speaking on different fruit addtion techniques for making melomels. He wil be doing a side-by-side comparison of difference meads made with all fruit in the primary, all fruit in the secondary, half primary/secondary, and one late fruit addition in primary. All meads will be made with the same fruit without any acid adjustments. The goal of this is to educate mead makers on the difference flavor profiles of each different fruit addition technique.

Carvin has been much in the mead scene the last couple years, and he’s cleaned up with many medals for his excellent meads. He’s also a very successful business owner, and a huge supporter of the AMMA and the Mazer Cup International. Carvin hosts a large suite during the events at the hotel and the meadmaker get togethers there are a who’s who of mead. He also generously hosts several tables at the MCI Mead Mixer to allow smaller meaderies to showcase their meads at the largest mead tasting in the world.
