    Default Rose water

    I am intrigued by the notion of using rose water in lieu of plain or distilled water in my next 5 gallon batch of mead. I am sure this idea has been explored but I've yet to read anything on the use of floral water for fermenting. I am wondering if the recipe for rose water would carry over to orchids as some species have an extremely sweet nectar that releases a powerful scent at certain times of the day. Any info or direction would be welcomed. Thanx, Xixist

    Excellent! Just what I needed to know. So I'm guessing that if rhodomel means rose mead then im going to attempt some orchimel with orchid flowers. Now to raid the greenhouse. Many thanx, Xixist

    Just make sure whatever your using doesn't turn out to be poisonous in certain concentrations and all that stuff

    Orchimel sounds like mead made with "mountain oysters" (which could be interesting). Might want to try another term.

    Reminds me of this local tap house using a local invasive species of mussel in their beer. Can't say it's their best seller but at least the mussels aren't worthless anymore.
