Mead making involves honey, water, and yeast. Use these mead making kits to produce a delicious batch of honey wine at home. Mead may be flavored with hops, fruit or spices depending on tradition or a given recipe.
In the Compleat Meadmaker, veteran beverage hobbyist Ken Schramm introduces the novice to the wonders of mead. With easy-to-follow procedures and simple recipes, he shows how you can quickly and painlessly make your own mead at home. In later chapters he introduces flavorful variations on the basic theme that lead to meads flavored with spice, fruits, grapes and even malt.
