View Full Version : New To Mead

08-05-2005, 08:27 AM
Hello everyone! I have just joined a Ren reenactment group and I have volunteered to make Mead for our group. I was wondering if anyone knows a very simple recipe that doesn't take to long to ferment. Also what basics do I need to start brewing Mead?

Thank You

Welcome to the Forums! You'll find this place to be filled with advice and innovation, and a nice group of mead maniacs to boot! Here's a link to the ongoing discussion of Joe Mattioli's Ancient Orange recipe -- a perfect and fast mead for the newbie and experienced mazer alike:

Here's another link to more talk about it:

Really, there's no need to read all of it unless you're hooked -- there's even more conversation about it tucked away here and there, if you do a search. The recipe is nearly foolproof, and yields a very nice spiced mead that would be a hit with the RenFair folk, I'd guess.
