Mead Knowledge :
The ancient Greeks gave the name Ambrosia to mead. It was also called Nectar. Some of the ancients believed it was the drink of the gods, and was thought to descend from the Heavens as dew. Then it would be gathered in by the bees. Ancient Greeks believed mead to have magical and sacred properties. The Greeks believed that mead would prolong life, bestow health, strength, virility, wit and poetry. The bees themselves, we are told by Virgil's Georgics are driven to the sky to honor the goddess Aphrodite. And, the prophetess at Delphi are suspected of drinking mead made from a honey from slightly toxic plants in order to induce their prophetic states, and visions of the future.

First time brewer here, and the directions donít say anything about waiting until the must cools down from 170 degrees before adding the yeast. Luckily for me, I had a friend who brews and he explained that adding the yeast then would have killed it. I waited until the next day when the temperature was down to 70 degrees to add the yeast Other than that one problem the directions were easy to use and I can wait for this to mature so I can enjoy.
