Mead (honey wine) is the new buzz among beverage hobbyists as more and
more consumers start to make their own. This up-to-date title tells the
novice how to begin and the experienced brewer or winemaker how to
succeed in this newest of the beverage arts.
From the Author
My goal in writing this
book is to begin bringing to meadmakers the breadth and depth of
knowledge and resources that are available to beer brewers and
winemakers. I sought to cover the many aspects of meadmaking in a
comprehensive but easy-to-read fashion, and to provide readers with an
understanding of the role quality ingredients play in creating a really
pleasing mead. This
complex, diverse and romantic drink deserves more attention than it has
received in print. It can range from bone dry to profoundly sweet, and
can be crafted to complement any type of food. If I spread some of my
enthusiasm for mead, and for this simple, fun and remarkably rewarding
hobby, then I will have succeeded at my task.
