today I went out and got all the fixings to make mead .... I found the cheapest way to do it that I could find on the net. I made two different batches, one with honey, raisins, cinnamon, ginger, an orange and (orange-tangerine juice) the other has honey, cinnamon, raisins, blueberries, orange-tangerine juice and amber agave nectar .... I bet they're going to be awesome.
I' planning on putting a dose of lotus z-bars (my size of dose) per glass in the agave nectar flavored one for my brother because the z-bars don't taste like bitter piss and he's not a big drinker and will give the others to my mom and step-father for x-mas and send another to my dad's on x-mas ..... got started early !!! I woke up today and read something online about mead and said that would be a good x-mas present and said fuck why not !
here is the recipe I used with some tweaks : http://www.stormthecastle.com/mead/fast ... making.htm
when you add spices it's called Metheglin and when you add fruit other than apple cider or grapes it's called melomel so I don't know what to call them lol
so I decided that the blueberry-blue agave one with blue lotus will be called blue mead I think and I will call the spiced ginger mead moms melomel cause mom will be like ... MY GOD what the fuck is it ? ha ha
also thinking of getting some sherry, 2 of those half gallon bottles (so I can use the bottles at xmas time to put the mead in) I can drink mine out of a jug
. some damiana and merachino cherries for one sherry infusion and mabey some cebilyuasca seeds and some blackberries for the other and letting them sit for a few months for a camping trip.
