Mace for Mace Mead

Mace Mead, a Spiced Mead Recipe. Let’s go on a three video journey with Mace Mead!

Mace Mead – Not that Mace! – Make Mead from Mace. I just had to put Mace Windu on the thumbnail even though… there’s no Jedi in this mead. It’s made from mace, the outer shell of nutmeg. Thus…. mace mead! Thank you Mandolin Man for the gift of Mace and the inspiration for this mead!

We added MORE spices to an already “spiceful” mead a few weeks ago. What happened? Did it get better? Or… is this mead just too far gone?

“Fixing” Mace Mead

Mace Mead! Not Windu, and not the medieval weapon, but… Mace, the spice. It’s related to nutmeg, sort of. It’s actually PART of the nutmeg? I think. If you know more, let me know in the comments of the video. Anyway, a viewer sent us a pile of the stuff and we made a MEAD with it. Shocking, I know. But anyway, it’s been aging for a year in the bottle and today we are tasting it.
