Just bottled up a tremendously successful dry hopped wild mint mead. This one is a winner having used Light Cellar hops and honey as well wild mint from my garden.
I made the mead plain with a wildflower honey and 3/4 of the way through the ferment added fresh wild mint to sit in the bottle, then strained that out after 2 days and added the dry hop cones for several days for their flavour to come out. strained it and bottled it today. and it is mighty fine!
I'll be aging this one away for my November Mead Making class - if you're around and want to learn how to make mead and have a taste, join me.
