Here is a batch of mead just recently bottled by Chris. It has a wonderful rich color to it. He used a Vintner's Harvest wine yeast for this batch and he tells us it has a wonderful flavor! My thanks to go to him for sending in the pictures!

Blueberry mead

Here are two batches of mead made by Scott. The one on the left is my quick easy mead and the one on the right has added blueberries! Yum! He is really happy with how it is going. Within five hours both developed a strong ferment and a nice stream of bubbles!

Here are two pictures of mead made by Zan. Here he tells us what they are:

I stumbled across your site about a year ago and it inspired me to start making my own mead. Figured it was about time that I sent some pictures to you if you'd like to add them to your site. 
From left to right in the bigger picture is an charred oak mead, a rosemary/vanilla mead, a mixed fruit mead of blackberries, strawberries, and peaches, an experimental batch of blackberry mead, and finally my base mead made with orange blossom honey that I will rack into smaller carboys for clearing and flavoring. The other picture is another batch of base mead using Snowberry honey.

Here are some batches of mead made by Dave and wow, what a wonderful variety! Here is what he says about it: First Thanks for the web site, I have learned everything I know about making mead from it.  Made my first two 1-Gallon batches Aug 2013.  The Spiced Orange (bottle on the left in the 1st pic) and Peach (bottle on the right in 1st pic). Then I did three 1-gal jugs, Oct 2013. Blueberry (bottle in center of 1st pic.) a Traditional and a Rose Hip that turned out superb.  The Gallon jugs in the 1st pic are my latest creations, Dec 2013 from left to right are another Rose Hip, another Blueberry and on the right is a Spiced Lemon that my be a bit to clovey.  Anyway thank you again, I am really enjoying my new hobby.

Two bottles of meadHere are two batches of mead made by Denise. She used my fast-easy method and she has a few wonderful insights for us. Her professor in microbiology class made mead for the class to show the fermentation process. And... here son loves to play skyrim. And if you play skyrim you know there is a lot of mead in it! So... lot of mead making fun all the way around!! The batches look great and my thanks go to her for sharing the pics and stories with us!

 

 

 

 

 

Here are six bottles of mead made by Jeremy. Here is what he has to say about them:

Thanks for responding to me.  Attached is a photo of the first 6 gallons we made.  The two to the far left are the first 2.  I made these from you recipe with the milk jugs and the balloons.  We racked them over last week and even with bakers yeast it didn't taste bad.  The others we have been using Wyeast(which to be honest, is a little expensive).  We are experimenting with different flavors to see what we like, and then next year depending on what we like, we are going to start making 5 gallon batches.  The one I'm really looking forward to, which is batch #5, is a winter solstice mead.  I put fall flavors into it,  3 cinnamon sticks, a vanilla bean, and some nutmeg.  Really hoping it turns out well for the holidays next year.  I'll let you know the progress of how they turn out and I'll shoot you recipes for what turns out to taste really well.  Again, thanks for everything and keep putting out rocking videos!  Cheers!

Here are some pictures of mead made by Mike and he tells us a little bit about it:

Hello, my name is Mike, and this is the recipe I call "Sweet Dreams. Being a southern boy I grew up drinking sweet tea. So its only natur al now that I've moved to Michigan to try a sweet tea wine. :) The tea holds 1.5 cups sugar per gal, and is brewed dark and robust. This particular batch is "extra yeast" and as of now is, I'd say, 2 weeks along. I also have a blueberry melomel I dub "Blue Sky" ageing in the fridge until January. Pic of the melomel has my fingers behind it to show clarity. I brew all my meads small batch, .5 gal at a time. The Blue Sky has a wonderful bittersweet taste, with a clean blueberry aftertaste, and has especially high gravity at 17.5%. The Sweet Dream is my first attempt at using sweet tea as a medium, I'll let you know how it is after a few month ageing period. :)
