Mead is a traditional drink made from water, honey, and yeast with other fruits and spices added in to enhance the pleasure in drinking it. In this class, we will learn the basic process of making wine from honey, including equipment, ingredients, and fermentation techniques, tips, tricks, and troubleshooting. Emphasis is on making wines with natural ingredients instead of chemicals, and a range of brew-styles from simple to technical will be presented. We will start one batch and taste several!
