You can augment your home made mead with any fruit juice, and any berry juice, and many many spices.

Is there anything that sounds fairly good, that you cant use?

What about Sage? Like, desert sage? The dry, sage brush smell is divine! It's one of my favorite smells. Would it be even remotely possible to put that aroma and flavor in mead? Obviously you'd probably want to use a tiny tiny ammount of it.

What about Radishes? Get the spiciest parts, and use them in the process to give your mead a nice little spicy after kick. Could be really fun! That peppery spice that radishes have is unique, and as a big fan of radishes, I'm always trying to find new ways of utilising them. But remember! Radishes can only be eaten raw. Cook them, and the spiceyness goes away.

I was just curious.

Wine VS. Mead?
Vineyards are environmentally destrutive.
Bee hives are environmentally constructive.

I agree... you get much better results using the buds. The THC levels in the leaves are inadequate and contribute to a harsh taste. ::)

PS: Does anyone else notice that the 3 day weekends go by faster than the two day ones?

Doesn't matter what honey you choose when you make "special" beef jerkey metheglin.

Shouldn't that be "What 'Kind' did you use? ;)

I think a saffron mead (by itself) would be pretty nasty :))

What about using Brownies? Then it could be a Chocolate MJ Mead!

Well, I'm a bit late jumping in on this but...

You probably would want to stay away from some of the obvious:
Water Hemlock
Deadly Nightshade (beautiful berries but...)
Poison Sumac,

I'd probably steer clear of mushtooms - even the edible ones - and I LOVE mushrooms.

Even the edible ones? ::) I prefer the dried ones with blue streaks... they might taste awful, but the world becomes a tasty morsel. :o 8)

There's only one thing to do... ROAD TRIP!!!

I was debating on just that, Morel dilemma. I'm usually a punster... it's just the type of fungi I am.

I think that mushroom mead would kind of grow on you after a few sips, mummm mushrooms and mead.

Me. Science hasn't yet found an answer, but empirical evidence seems to indicate that when I come in contact with your mead, the volume of mead inexplicably decreases...

hmmm.... ;D
