    You know, for GotMead forum readers/browsers/et. al., I think the best mead to make on Mead Day is Ancient Joe's Ancient Orange. Ancient Orange was first launched on this forum, a wonderful recipe for beginners and advanced alike. Have you heard of the legendary Irish group, The Chieftains? They've also sampled Ancient Joe's Ancient Orange melomel. Every one has heard of this recipe, even the Chieftains of Ireland.

    Never mind what the AHA recipe for the year is. Let's all make a batch of Ancient Orange, in honor of Joe Mattioli, for giving us such a wonderful recipe.

    That's the plan. As I understand it several people from the club / store plan on making a batch of mead as a demo. I plan on making a batch of JAO.

    In addition I have one just finishing up for people to taste (Just praying the heat didn't do it any damage while I was away).

    We plan on having everything on hand so that if someone new to mead wants to, they can buy all the ingredients and supplies and walk away with a 1 gallon carboy full and happily bubbling away.


    Cheers
