At its most basic, mead - one of the world's oldest alcoholic beverages - is a blend of honey and water fermented with yeast. History of mead, terminology, safety and sanitation, and raw vs cooked methods are covered. Participants leave with 2-litres of mead-in-the-making to continue the fermentation process at home, simple instructions, and recipe variations for future mead-making adventures. Each participant will be provided with a reusable glass growler, fermentation lock and bung.
