Somebody recently allowed me to sample a few different meads and it seems to be something I quite like so I decided to try to make some on my own. I think it would be neat if I could have a bottle of mead that I made for new years. I did not like the spiced or fruit meads as much as I liked the traditional meads I tried.

All the short mead recipes I seem to find are mixed with fruit. Would it be possible to make a traditional mead that will have a decent taste in that time period?
