    Default New Gotmead Feature: The Meadwench's Blog

    For those that are interested, I'm posting my blog - click here and check the 'The Rest of the Story' menu to the left for a link there too.

    This is just my ramblings, starting with an account of the International Mead Festival last month, including great pix from summersolstice and yancy.

    I'll be adding observations, news tidbits, trip descriptions, new discoveries and other oddments for your amusement there.....

    Vicky - really tired now, time to crash
    Wassail!

    Should be fun to get in the wenches head. Where did all this mead come from?

    Ken Schramm's "Heart of Darkness v2"? with a name like that my interest is piqued. The use of habenero(made contention with Mr Baldwin's winner?) also interests me. Any chance of more info on those two? Recipe in the patrons? Nudge Nudge. Sounds like an awesome time was had by many.

    You'll find info on the 'Heart of Darkness' in "The Compleat Meadmaker, the V2 is his refinement. As to what he's done, you'll have to ask Ken. I can only say it was divine.

    The habenero mead was the most interesting combination of sweet and hot I've ever had. I don't know who made it, so I can't help you there, but I can look into it and see if I can find out.

    A great time *was* had by all, and I can't wait for next year!
    Wassail!

    Hmmm, since I can't find "Heart of Darkness" in TCMM, I wonder if it is perhaps a renamed version of the "Mambo in Your Mouth" multiberry melomel. Perhaps it contains the black currants that Mr Schramm mentions in a possible new version of this recipe.

    The idea of habenero in a mead really sparked an interest when I first read about the use of peppers (also in TCMM) and for whatever reason buckwheat and oak entered my mind at the same time. Some of the many ideas that I haven't followed up on,.......yet.

    I hope that you have an excellent time next year as well
    Thanks, Jon
