Strawberry Banana Mead

Strawberry Banana Mead Recipe. Why can’t we make a hydromel? For some reason, we have problems making anything low ABV, like a hydromel. We meant for it to be like 5%, but apparently we can’t drive…. 5? Yeah, bad joke, but we did make a strawberry banana mead. That’s right, a MEAD (or honey wine) with REAL strawberries and bananas! Okay, they were frozen, but… still very REAL! And it was GOOD! Here is the video!
