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.

It would make the kit easier to have a the recipe in the box. But enjoyed the process. Thank you
Before I'd ordered this item, I had done a bit of looking around on the net for some simple recipes and used those to get comfortable with making Mead, which is good because the directions that came with this were highly confusing, and 80% of what the directions called for never even showed up. BUT I treated this just like the other Mead I have made, and so far it's turned out just fine. AIH Note: please feel free to contact our customer support team if anything is missing from your order. Thank you!
I bought this kit when it was on sale. It was a nice price for a good honey, which I augmented with black currant wine base (product 24-3330) and about 10 #s blueberries. Great results. I consider myself a novice mead maker but a very experienced homebrewer. This is the first mead kit I've ever bought, and although I altered the kit considerably, I was impressed with the easy instructions and the convenient packaging of k-meta, go-ferm, yeast nutrient, and k-sorbate. A real newbie should be able to do all right with this.
