I demand photos of this "mead in progress".

Honestly - throw a few buckets of honey into a wooden barrel with fortified wine and Olde English, serve in faux horn glasses, and you are set.

You can already buy mead not far from where I live. It's called Lindesfarne Mead (from Lindesfarne strangely), and the recipe hasn't changed in something like 400-500 years.

I love it.

Can I have a job Neo? I'll happily be one of the wenches :)

Yeah, I know I'm a guy, but come on... Equal Opportunity Wenching and all that :)

so like twin peaks, or titled kilts, or ojos locos, or the library, etc etc??


I wish my library had wenches. It would have made school much more interesting :(

It's still a small operation, but I highly recommend Stonekeep Meadery if you can get it. If anyone actually orders any, tell Gavan that Wystan sent you. Hell, you might get a deal. ( He has no idea I just posted this, haven't talked to him since the kid, not a paid advertisement. )


It's still a paid advertisement if he pays you back in mead~

Only as much mead as he has on his person that he hasn't already consumed. But that's free already. And he'll share it with anyone who wants a taste. I suspect that's his primary form of advertisement; it sure as hell ain't the website. I've seen him sell a case by just passing a bottle around.

I barely drink anymore, but a good swig of mead is nice on occasion.

So Neo, you are thinking of starting your own mead factory and compete with your grand total of $57.42 in your bank account? Get real, guys don't want skimpy, scantily clad wenches to look at, they want to envision what they might look like without all of the garb. I bet ($1 max) you'd have half of DIC members attending any grand opening you may have. Also there would be no shortage of guys to TEST the mead for commercial consumption.

@Modi I'll agree that approximately 49% of the world could be female but they control 100% of the p....

If you make it happen, I'm sure many will come and cheer for your success.

Hells yeah I would be there! If there was a D.I.C. only soft opening for a fellow member's business I would try to attend!

That isn't what the term "soft opening" brings to mind for me...

Okay, so I tried mead for the first time yesterday. Me gusta mucho. I am definitely going to start brewing. Just thought I'd give you an update on that.

You've got a set of the basic requirements. Just need to apply incredible amounts of determination.

This sounds like it's ready to have some serious thought put in. The first question I have is whether the roast pig with apple in it's mouth will be an every day thing or if it will be a friday night special.
