Mead usually conjures up images of loud vikings and boisterous drinking halls. In reality, mead is a refined and delicate beverage with many subtleties, flavors, and styles. Dry mead can be a refreshing aperitif, and sweet mead does nicely as a rich dessert wine. In addition, there are melomels, pyments, cysers and all kinds of combinations to explore. This class will be an introduction to honey, mead, mead-blends, and the whole mead-making process. Hands-on mead-making will occur in class. Experience with beer or wine making will be helpful, but not necessary. Beekeepers are encouraged to bring contact information for other masers looking to source products.
