View Full Version : Busy first year

yes, it's been just about a year since I first started making mead. I've been busy as a bee brewing up all sorts of meads, and since I finally figured out how to get this digital camera to work, I've got some pics of my work ;D

Here's a pic of one bottle from each batch.
From the left, vanilla metheglyn, sage-lavender metheglyn, 2 bottles of sparkling strawberry melomel, a blueberry melomel, a raspberry melomel, my ginger capsicumel, spiced cyser, and all the way the right a ginger wine (not mead, but oh well). I have special names for each one on the bottle right below the type of mead (second line, not sure if you can read it in this pic). The ones turned to the side are the ones I got too lazy to label :D

Here's a shot of my favorite ones, my first born vanilla meth, sage lavender, raspberry, the 2 strawberry's, and the blueberry is on its side.

And I have 7 more batches where that came from, but they're all in primary and secondary.

Wishing you all happy mazing,

Nice assortment of bottles; they're all very pretty colors as well! Not sure I'd be brave enough to line them up on an ironing board though... :P

beat me to it! I don't think I would have lined them up on an ironing board !

eh it's a sturdy little thing. I use it as a collapsable table when the desk is occupied. Actually this thing can hold full carboys... well the 1 gallon carboys anyway, I'm a risk taker but not enough of one to try it with a 5 gallon :D
