I just wanted to post to say, "Hello!" to everyone. I'm new to the forum and mead, but not entirely new to brewing. I live in Minnesota and started brewing beer several months ago. Now with a few beers and 2 batches of apple wine under my belt, I want to take on the old medieval standby, mead. I've tried mead on a few occasions (Renaissance Festival and local beer festivals) and have always enjoyed it. My favorites are dry mead and blueberry melomel.
I'll be lurking around and already have a question I've been searching for an answer to for awhile. Anyone know of a good local MN source for honey? Northern Brewer out of St. Paul has a couple varieties of honey (clover and wildflower), but I'd really like to support local beekeepers and get the added benefit of knowing where my honey is coming from.
Now's the time to start making some mead!
