Mead Supplies

Mead-Mead is a beverage that is made by fermenting honey. There are many variations from dry to sweet, fruit meads and spiced meads. Mead is a great beverage to make during summer as it doesn't need cool fermentation temperatures. Mead can be made either "still" with no carbonation or "sparkling" with carbonation. We include priming sugar with the mead kits so you have the option of making them still or sparkling. Like wine, meads will improve with age and are great to save for a special occasion. The term "honeymoon" is thought to originate with the tradition of a newly married couple drinking mead every day for a month, a gift of mead is a unique wedding gift. We have three mead kits that will give great results in a short time.
