    Well, if you read Joes original recipe, he sometimes didn't wait for fruit to drop

    Hmmm Well I've been known to dip into the jug early myself. Still never had a problem getting the fruit out.

    The link to Joe's Ancient Orange Mead is dead, here is the URL http://www.gotmead.com/index.php?opt...&recipe_id=118
    This doesn't help us newbies much.
    Thanks.
    Started mead making in 2014.

    Speaking of links that don't work, the Newbee's Guide link in the first post doesn't work for me either. Using Chrome. It just goes to a short page with 2 paragraphs about honey and beekeeping, and that's it, nothing else.

    My adolescent JAOM at 3 weeks yesterday. I hope this is what it is supposed to look like. Probably more like early adult. I don't know, is there a category between the two?

    My wife started bee keeping. All seemed OK until I realized, what are we going to do with 10 to 50 gallons of honey per year. Off to sample at Redstone and Rocky Mountain Meadery and then nibble, set, hooked...

    I had to go back and ask how I started down this road. And it was a trip started by my wife.
    Now she has not been real thrilled with the results (especially since I blasted a batch all over the dining room ceiling!) but knows I'll get there.
    SHE was in the local brew store buying EZ Cap bottles for her homemade Irish Creme, and saw Ken Schramm's book. She likes mead and thought I might be able to make her some.
    Soooo I got the book for Christmas and I jumped in with both feet (with her pushing). Darn if it wasn't a deep pool.
    Good thing she is patient and forgiving....

    I've been brewing my own beer for almost 5 years now, and haven't gotten into Mead Making, as of yet. I've got a gallon of South Texas Amish honey waiting to go into my first batch. I'm a huge fan of visiting forums as a way of learning, and I'm looking forward to learning from all of y'all here.

    Imagine if you didn't have to boil anything to make beer. That's mead. I suggest you start making a JAOM. It's super easy and will teach you the most important thing you need to develop with mead. Patience.
