It was Meadrol's idea! (http://www.gotmead.com/forum/showthread.php?p=190416);D

My first suggestion would be something like really hot peppers... but subtle, so you don't realize the damage till you've swallowed too much of it for the next day to be pleasant :)

Well, if you're going all the way to poop mead, then I recommend using rabbit poop. Just the nice hard ones. They're easy to handle and full of vitamins. I suspect it wouldn't even be harmful to drink, just earthy gross.

You could call it Lepusumel or any poop mead could be Copromel.

Usually, but I had to spread the word of the over-reaching of Government power to control the alcohol that I can drink (seeing that we have a free-market economy I should be allowed to go to the market and freely choose what I drink even if the bottle says a "naughty" word and everyone else should keep their children out of the liquor store)

Well, I know when my son was younger, my choice was get berated as a bad father for leaving him in the car or get berated as a bad father for bringing him in with me. I chose the latter.

but there's the difference, you understand that something in that store may not be inappropriate for a little one.

Last movie I actually went to see in the theater was the remake of Halloween and on the way out there was a mom with her son, who was 10 at the most complaining how the movie wasn't appropriate for her son. No shit lady that was why it was rated R. Some adults have no common sense and the rest of us shouldn't be penalized for the stupidity of others.

Don't mess with my Alcohol!!! (sorry the original news article was the banning or a delicious Michigan made beer, which pissed me off and then someone linked to a story of Michigan banning a beer from Flying Dog and I like the Flying Dog beers that I've tried so that pissed me off)

And women like that are why the government feels like they need to parent my kid for me. I'm sorry, but if you get 10 different sets of parents in a room, you are going to find 10 different theories on parenting and 10 different levels of comfort with content. then if each set of parents had 2 kids, you are going to have 20 different personalities that can handle different levels of content. There is no "one size fits all" gauge of what is appropriate for all children! Let me parent my child and I won't tell you how to parent yours. (I don't know if it's available online, but Stephen King has a great essay about this very thing where he talks about how, for one of his children, Bambi was scarier than any movie based on his books.)

Each kid is different too, my brother used to watch horror movies with my dad where at that same age, looking at pictures (and I mean drawings, not photographs) of animals baring their teeth would give me nightmares... what's good/appropriate for one kid may be totally wrong for another. And I'm glad I never saw Bambi as a young child or I'd have been scarred for life. Grimm's fairy tales were bad enough once I was old enough to read them myself, although thankfully by that point I was over the nightmares thing.

Anything fermented hot would give you a wicked hangover. Combine that with the aspartame idea to mask the nasty taste and you're good! Even better, combine that with the fiber and you'd have to get out of bed over and over while being horribly hung over. Ouch.

You don't want your hate-mead to be clear, do you? I think cloudy and served in a dark glass is much more appropriate. ;D

If the fiber is charged, it might get pulled out by a fining agent (depends on the relative charges of course). Do we know if it's charged when in solution?
