Hi folks!

Well, we've been talking in other threads and other boards about how to improve GotMead. So, here's the scoop. If you want it to change, then volunteer to help (several of you already have, Thanks!).

First request is this: I'm using a new recipe program called CyberBrau. It's a PHP/mySQL program, and you can find it at http://www.cyberbrau.org if you're interested. It's set up for beer, but we can fudge it 'round.

We need to come up with mead info like this. You scientific types, we need a list of mead styles (mead, melomel, etc.) with an OG range, an FG range, and alcohol percent range. Don't worry about the rest of the numbers (IBU SRM CO2), because they don't really apply in mead. But I'm going to re-program this program to be a mead program. I've already emailed the creator for permission. If we don't know the info, we can always add it later, as data piles up. But we need a start point.

Right now, it has the following info in the 'styles' section:
