There will be two mead making classes held at my house in the next couple of weeks. The first will be on Friday, October 29th beginning at 7 PM. The second will be on Tuesday November 9th, also starting at 7 PM. Directions can be found on the shire website.
If you'd like to start your own batch during the class you will need the following:
- A container for the mead, best is a 1 to 5 gallon glass jug/carboy, or a brewing bucket.
- Honey, 3-4 lbs per gallon of mead you want to make.
- Water (if you don't like my tap water)
- Yeast, I've been recommending Lavin 71B to start with.
I can pick up yeast and jugs/carboys for people, but I need to know a few days ahead to do it.
