Ah, The Saga Continues…

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.


Coming soon to a blog near you…

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.”

HEY!!! I’m not dead!

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…

Which Pages Are Active?

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)

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