Hi everyone. I'm a member a couple other mead, wine , and brewing forums. I've been making mead and wine for several years and beer for only a couple of years. I have a little free time at work and I enjoy browsing the forums. It looks like you have a good community here!

This is a nice place to be. What are some of your current projects?

I always have something in the secondary. Currently I have a traditional Sourwood mead and a Chardonnay pyment in primaries and 10 galllons of oaked Chardonnay pyment, Calamansi (a citrus fruit from the Philippines) melomel, and Blackberry/Burgundy wine in secondaries and a Marionberry melomel in an oak barrel and I just bottled a pale braggot.

Welcome SS, Okay, what is sourwood?
This Sourwood Honey from Mountain Honey in Georgia is arguably the best honey in the world. In fact, Mountain Honey entered their Sourwood Honey in the World Honey Show, in Dublin, Ireland. With 21 different countries represented and over 400 entries, their Sourwood Honey took the "BEST HONEY IN THE WORLD" award.

Hello SummerSolstice and welcome to the forum,

We have quite a bit of interest generated here for melomels, cysers, meads etc .. If you care to share any tried and true recipes etc.. we'd love to have them.

Thanks, Allie. I have a couple award winning wine and mead recipes posted on another forum with several more that were never entered in competition that have proven very popular as well. I'll get settled in and see what members like and hopefully make some helpful contributions.
