To me, it really speaks volumes that we're able to disagree on tastes, techniques, processes, methods and the like, and still agree on enjoying our end product. Giving respect to people is a precious commodity in this day and age, and the posters on this board should take the time to appreciate themselves and their brethren in these forums for doing precisely that. Everyone here seems to really embrace being helpful, courteous and respectful.

And here I thought we were all just a bunch alcoholics hooked on the same elixir... ;)

I would agree that meadmakers, not just in this forum, but everywhere (including SCA and local interest groups) tend to be more focused on helping others than trying to achieve some sort of one-upsmanship, like you see in so many other hobbies. It makes it a great hobby to be getting into. ;D

My first batch goes down in the next two weeks!!! Going to be a "Meth" (spiced mead) since I can't pronounce, much less spell the "metheglomelym" or whatever that word is... ::)
