First, let me apologize to anyone who has asked questions or left comments in the last few months. I have tried multiple times to change my email to my current email, but never get a confirmation email from WordPress in order to do this. I am still working on it. I will try my best to check my Dashboard for messages at least every other day now that I realize what is going on, and will answer the questions already asked, although I assume you all found answers elsewhere.
Plus, I broke my ankle in November and my world pretty much stopped for a while.
I know, I know. I keep promising updates. After my last promise, I took a new job and moved cross country. I will do a post on the pain of moving mead yourself…later. When I’m over the trauma.
Anyway, I am starting the process of updating posts (starting with Show Meads), putting on recipes and getting back to it! I also added a page of my greatest failures (The Agony of Defeat). This would be a great time to ask any questions or make a note of what you would like updated first.
Remember, “The oxen are slow, but the earth is patient.”
I realize it’s been a while. Well, over a year actually. I apologize to my three followers and five fans. 🙂 I know I have not written, but I have not been idle. I have made over 50 gallons of mead now, and 48 different recipes. I realized that I needed to wait on many of them until they had aged a couple of years. How could I give you recipes and tips that I have not tried? Then I had to give the experiments time to age. And age they did!! No new links are done yet, but I will be updating shortly. In the meantime, I’m drinking some 2 year old mead. Oh, yeah…
I don’t like to click on numerous pages and find no information, and I imagine most of you are the same way. So, here are the pages that are active and complete (well, mostly – I have to admit I am a chronic editor. As I gather more information, I will be adding to the pages already done):
NEW: Pyment (under recipes)
NEW: Cyser (under recipes)
NEW: The Agony of Defeat

The Glossary will be an ongoing process, but some definitions are there
