A web visitor snapped this picture of a happy raisin inside his mead. It is hilarious. I would say that is one happy raisin :) It is very understandable considering it is swimming in delicious mead. LOL
For centuries mead has had a reputation for being a difficult drink that is very "manly" and almost a bit nasty. You can see this in some movies. But that reputation is so very far from the truth. And I think that these pictures will help to dispel that myth.
Here are two pictures of mead made by Caty. She is definitely having a lot of fun with the mead making!! The colors are absolutely magnificent! My thanks go to her for sharing these pics!!!
Here are four meads that were made by Phil. My thanks to him for this update! From left to right they are Blueberry, Blackberry, Strawberry, and Japapeno.
Are here are those four meads now bottled in gorgeous Ice Wine bottles to show off their colors.
Of the four Phil says that the jalapeno is his favorite. It has a wonderful jalapeno aroma and as it hits your tongue it is at first sweet then it bites back!
Here is a picture of mead made by Eric! This is after the first racking. And wow, does it look good or what?

Here is a series of meads made by Marshall - From left to right.. Orange clove mead (D47) 2 months old, Orange Cinnamon (EC-1118), Blueberry (Montrachet), Red Raspberry (Pasteur Red), Lemmon Lime (K1-V1116), Pear (71B-1122). All are fermenting extremely well!!
Note from Will: Wow, these are simply fantastic. My thanks for Marshall for sending me the pic and the update! And this picture shows us something very significant about mead - how it transforms and clarifies. Notice the bottle on the far right. See how it is cloudy and kind of like a milk shake? That is a new batch, over the course of a month it will transform and clarify, and end up looking like the bottle on the far left. Pretty amazing.
Here is a batch of meads made by Thurman. He is doing a spectacular job with this and clearly having a lot of fun. He is making a wide variety of beautiful looking flavors including Pear Mango, Chocolate Maraschino Cherry, white peach and more!
Here is a batch of mead made by Travis. All I can say is that this batch has the richest and most beautiful color I have ever seen in a mead. Well done Travis! And my thanks to you for sharing this with us.
How's that for a color! This is an actual closeup of the mead!
