leakyroof5-3-16 Yep, late again. I’m planning to fix that in the next series. This is the last GML until May 24, we are taking a 2 week break to set up the next series.

Today we’re talking with Todd, Jhett and Andrew with Leaky Roof Meadery in Buffalo, MO. Leaky Roof got started out of a failed meadery project that the guys were involved with, and the name comes from an association with a nearby railroad and the fact that many of the properties they looked at actually had leaky roofs, lol.

They make a variety of meads, and have an interesting background that we’re going to pull out of them tonight on the show.

On Making Mead-Back to Basics, AJ, Manny and Ryan will be digging into the questions we’ve had coming in. If you want them to tackle your mead making stuff, you can send us a question and we’ll tackle it online!
9PM Eastern tonight!!

Bring your questions and your mead, and let’s talk mead! You can call us at 803-443-MEAD (6323), or Skype us at meadwench (please friend me first and say you’re a listener, I get tons of Skype spam), or tweet to @gotmeadnow.

This player will show the most recent show, and when we’re live, will play the live feed. If you are calling in, please turn off the player sound, so we don’t get feedback.

What we were drinking:
