pm flyman...

he had some excellent product that we consumed this past new year.

I have heard folks here suggest that a champaign yeast works quite well with mead.

as you may infer I have never made mead. I do quite enjoy drinking the stuff after which I have this almost genetic tendency to go and loot England.
