in reply to OT: PerlMonks Brewers

I don't brew beer, but I do make mead. Which, by the way, is more like a wine made from honey and water.

I do enjoy beer (Corsendonk Brown, Schenider Hefe-Weisen and lambics favorite now...) but since i can't buy any mead around here i'll stick to making just that. well, until i can afford to buy some more carboys...

    I make mead as well, but with the recent issues with honey bees and mites, honey has become pretty scarce and expensive.

    I have some mead put up that is about 5 years old...just getting really good.

    Beer has a more immediate satisfaction in that after a few weeks of effort, I can tell if my results were good and make adjustments....mead can take years to mature so my turn-around for mistakes and improvements is much longer.
