Hi everybody.

So for a while now I have had people sending me their mead asking me of what I thought and what could they do to improve the mead.

And, as some of you know I am now a certified mead judge in the MJCP. This is the governing organization that oversee all the competitions that you will compete in in the US.

I would like to offer to you a chance to get some feedback on your stuff. I will fill out an official score sheet and also include possible ideas to improve your finished product.

If you send me a copy of your log I will also comment on what I think you can do to improve your protocol.

I know for me, I entered many things in competitions before I had ever even tasted a mead in that category. Not looking to win anything but to get some feedback from someone.

The feedback helps. And you never get protocol clarification when you enter a competition.

I'll do this free of charge for anyone who wants to send something my way.

PM me if your interested

You're funny. I have 10 times the mead I could ever drink in an entire lifetime sittin around here. Actually I thought to my self, "I sure hope I don't get a lot of bad tasting stuff that I have to score". The good thing about scoring a mead is you can get all the sensory info you need with a single ounce. So it doesn't require drinking much if it's not very good.

Yes it is cool.
The soonest i plan to enter is the Texas mead cup in September. Nothing will be ready for the "Mead free or Die".

Anyone know of any Mead events between 4/30 and late September?
