Mead by Year

My mead making has been sporadic — which is odd, as the results have consistently proven good. I was going to lump this with the “Other Wines”, but decided mead deserves its own page.

Please note that I don’t make mead, I make metheglin, which is mead with spices. While almost any spice can be used (I’ve read recipes for bizarre ones that didn’t sound good), I used cinnamon and cloves, plus other pie-type spices. I will be experimenting with other ideas as time goes on.

Note: The wines in this list are in the order made. Clickable links navigate to the wine making log for the wine clicked. Each log is a separate post that is also reachable by the other lists in this menu, but this is the easiest list to use.

Also note that wines marked with a green background are in progress, e.g., have not yet been bottled.
