This talk will take place on Zoom.
In this powerpoint talk, we’ll be looking at the various steps in making a good mead. Mead making is very easy but there are a few critical steps that must be followed in order to make good mead. We will be discussing the various different types of mead, how to choose the best ingredients, what equipment is needed, how to prepare the must, special fermentation techniques, aging mead, serving mead and how to evaluate mead quality. Each registered attendee will receive a tasting box of 3 different meads brewed by Andy which we will be tasting during his talk.
