Homebrew mead.

I usually brew 5 gallon batches of beer, but tonight I started my first mead.
Any other brewers on here?

    Looks beautiful!

    My whole family makes beer and wine. I’ve done wine, beer, and hard cider. I haven’t made mead yet, but I’m dying to. What type of yeast do you use for mead?

    I can say I’m dabbling. I’ve made Mead and various Fruit Wines. Make sure you put A LOT of honey in your Mead. 3.5 – 4 lb to the gallon isn’t enough as I found out. Pleasant enough to drink but by god this stuff is dry! I think I just used Wine Yeast for my Mead. A friend of mine is brewing his Wines with simple Bread Yeast and it seems to work out pretty well.

    I did some brewing a few years back, all ales. I eventually stopped for a few reasons — it’s very difficult to find brewing equipment and ingredients in Canada especially since Paddock Wood in Saskatoon stopped their online supplies business. And then we ran through a spot of financial troubles that we haven’t quite made it out of yet. I miss it terribly and hope I can start up again this year.

    I’ve done ales and ciders, but I mostly retired from it too for various reasons. Although, I am just getting back into cidering. I just planted a half dozen apple trees and plan on making a cider press this coming year.

    This is going to be my third year brewing fruit wines and mead. Mead wise, I’ve only done a vanilla metheglin and an apple melomel. I’m probably going to try a blueberry melomel this year, once my local beekeeper starts getting her honey.

    Just bottled an Irish red last night and there’s an amber in the keg in my mini fridge. Never done mead though.

    Was going to get my dad a home brew kit for C-mas but the guy from CL flaked.

    I moved to where they don’t have any of the beer I like (basically apricot ale)

    I guess I could just order some.

    How hard is it to make beer?

    And how much does it cost?

    brewed a lot back in the day.
    Used to work at an outdoor ed center.
    Not much to do at night but brew and drink. We had access to the institutional pot sinks, ranges, and dishwasher and that spoiled me for making beer in a apt.
    Sometime, I’ll add a potsink down in the basement and get back into it.
