    Default What do you call an obsessive mead maker??

    I've head home winemakers referred to as winos.
    I've heard brewers referred to as hop heads.

    What should you call someone who has mead on the brain?

    A meadalomaniac?...
    A meadhead?...

    Someone must have something good.

    Ummm... for mead makers, "obsessive" would seem to be redundant. <g>

    I think a number of names have already been created (and used regularly) for this. e.g. Medsen Fey, WayneB, Chevette Girl, Oscar, etc. I only hope that one day, mine may join the hallowed list!
