I stumbled across a recipe for Jo’s Ancient Orange Mead last November and have really wanted to give it a crack. Super easy and maybe $8 in honey.
Gallon of water
2-3 lbs honey
1 orange in 1/8’s
Shake the bejesus out if it to mix and aerate.
Add 1 tsp bread yeast. Give it a swirl to mix and cap with your stop cock thingy.
Wait 2-12 months (opinions vary).
