    Default Turning Hollywood onto mead

    Well another interesting evening.

    They are filming a new TV series on our block and the food services truck is parked quite literally in out front yard (or at least on the street in front of our house), Iíll weight 800 lbs by the time this is through.

    But the reason for this post is what happened after filming today. I had the producer and the lead actor, over for a mead tasting.

    They started clearing off the table, so before they could finish, here is a photo of the damages, with my friend Niel in the background.

    It included.

    Beer:

    Heather Ale

    Yarrow Ale

    Gruit Ale with all local herbs, Yarrow, Juniper, Rosemary and Sage, very interesting, but I doubt if I will do it again.

    Sage infused double Belgium

    Cider (you can see the ďCheap Cider growler in the backgroundĒ)

    Meads:

    Semi Sweat Show Mead
    Dry Show Mead
    Dry, Semi Sweat and Sweat JAO
    Lime
    Lemon
    Petite Sirah based Pyment
    Blackberry
    Pomegranate
    Semi Sweat Chocolate mead
    Ginger Mead
    Sage Mead
    Hatch Chili and Chocolate Mead

    Iím working on having a wrap party at our house, the hook is I will provide all the beer and mead. If Iím lucky Iíll turn a whole small subset of Hollywod onto mead.

    Cheers
    Jay

    I don't see the photo but by the list, holy crap, you weren't kidding about cleaning off the table!

    That sounds like a great time, and much better than what I thought the title was originally: Turning Hollywood INTO Mead. That just didn't seem likely.
    Want to see something added to the GotMead Glossary? PM me! Didn't know we had a glossary? Check the top row of links.

    And something tells me it'd taste really bad. Almost like a...hollywood movie, or something
    Please excuse me for asking lots of question. It's really your fault! Because you're an awesome group of people too willing to answer questions, I just find more thing I wonder about as I learn more. So, sorry for that
