So you want to know how to make mead? It’s easy.
Honey, water, and yeast (the yeast might already be in the honey).
Well, not quite.
Sure, you can make mead that way, but it’s better to have a little knowledge behind you. You want to choose the right yeast for what you’re trying to do, the right amount of honey, select additions, the list goes on and on.
Very little mead was made historically with just honey. Most of it had fruits, herbs, spices or other flavorings added. All these things need to be taken into account when making a mead.
In the video above, we go over all the things you need to get started. This is a basic mead, nothing fancy, but… simple doesn’t mean it doesn’t taste good. The little touches we added make it taste wonderful, even young.
Speaking of young, like fine wine, mead gets better with age. The honey flavors really come back, and the alcohols mellow, creating a truly amazing drink.
Go ahead, give mead making a try. Just remember, the better products you put in your mead, the better mead you will make in the end!
