    Thumbs up Join Oskaar in Fullerton June 4, 2011 and make some mead!

    Hello to all of you GotMeaders!

    I'll be doing a meadmaking seminar/demonstration in Fullerton, California on Saturday, June 4, 2011 at Addison Homebrew Provisions.

    I'll be making a melomel (tentatively a tart cherry) using my own unique technique and explaining the process as I whip up the batch of mead. I'll also post the recipe here on GotMead in the Patron Section.

    If you plan on coming out, bring a bottle of mead with you (or two. . . maybe three) and join the fun. If you have the fixins to make a batch of mead, bring them along as well and we'll have a group-grope orgy of meadmaking right there on the spot, and I can help you dial in your recipes and show you my way of making some great mead.

    Here's the address and phone for the location:

    1328 East Orangethorpe Ave
    Fullerton, CA 92831
    714.752.8446

    Trust me when I say my style is unique, half-science, half-intuition and half-technology, some fun and generally involves plenty of taste testing (of finished mead, and of course the must).

    Looking forward to seeing you there.

    Cheers,

    Oskaar

    Is it tasty . . . precious?

    What do you mean Skunkboy? You're close... relatively.

    How about an Australian Tour Oskaar?

    that'd be a long swim for me too! An Asian-Australian tour perhaps, Oskaar?

    Now that would be nice, my sister lives in Australia (Victoria) so it would be nice to get down there and give her a rough time, and hassle my nephew. They were up for Christmas and New Year's 2010 and 2011. But it's such a long way and it would be nice to see them more than once a year!

    Cheers,

    Assuming I have that day off of work (a little late to request it off), I'll be there! Sounds like a great time.
    Find what you like, and hone it to perfection.

    And don't serve dodgy mead!

    Haha, totally true! This should be a blast, we have folks from several of the local brew clubs coming to join the fun.

    Hmmm.... Do you have to bring your own red-heads or are they provided?

    Got the 4th off, so I'll be there!

    Now, when you say to bring stuff to make a batch, just whatever we want to make? Or will everyone make a cherry mead? Either way, I need to do something with my goldenrod honey before SWMBO uses it all.

    Feel free to bring whatever you want to make. I'll be doing a tart cherry mel, but you're free to make whatever you like and I'll help to dial in your recipe.

    Cheers, and glad to see that you'll be there.

    Redheads?
    This is clearly a joke, but are we talking Rangas, matches or something I've never heard of before..

    It's a reference to my proclivity for redheaded women.

    Believe me when I say that I would rather go to this event on the 4th than the wedding on the 5th. To the nth degree.

    Yeah, one o' them family events. Sigh.

    ahh... so it is just rangas... only female rangas in this particular case. Fair enough.

    +1
    I even have the day off!
    I'd do anything to escape winter atm... it's so depressing.
    I wish every year that I could put on some mead to ferment in the nice cool climes, and then go north for the winter. (Yeah, north. Everything's upside down here remember)

    Looks like we're going to have a pretty good turnout so far, plus there will be a beer making demo going on before I do the cherry melomel demo. Should be a hoot!

    Like I said, if you have honey, yeast and water, plus something to ferment in, come on down and make some mead!

    Cheers,

    Oskaar
