Brewing Mead: A Pictorial

A man on a mission. I got shit to buy. Look out world—or at least store.

———————————————————————————————————

All the best home improvement projects include a 12-pack of beer. Seriously. It’s in the Bible.

———————————————————————————————————

Before I get started, hummus and bread. A man needs his strength.

———————————————————————————————————

Here is the honey, yeast, and bee pollen. The bee pollen is for nutrient. I only need a teaspoon. Good thing I have plenty.

———————————————————————————————————

The must: water and dissolved honey. Sitting at 150 degrees.

———————————————————————————————————

The tisane: an infusion of kiwi fruit and hot water, kept in a thermos to facilitate festering. The tisane adds additional nutrient, plus acid for balance and a subtle character.

———————————————————————————————————

The Yeastie Boys, livening up in a common plastic bowl.

———————————————————————————————————

The final result. The concoction will undergo a controlled rotting we humans call “fermentation”. Magic, baby.
