The Meads that I have made to date are similar to wines, some dry, some sweet. My wife likes her wine on the sweeter side so most are sweet. All are made from fruit so technically they are Melomel's. Most of my meads are made from fruit that I have grown and local honey.Welcome aboard! I am embarrassed to admit, but I have never tasted Mead. I imagine it as pretty thick. Is it like a dessert wine?
