Save Water:
Brew Mead

Water seems to be on everyone’s minds these days. Out here in Vermont, we’ve only had two days without rain in the last three weeks while the historic droughts in the West are a constant topic of conversation.

It’s difficult to get a water footprint of mead (believe us, we’ve tried) because there are so many varieties of honey and so many factors that go into each variety. For example, do you count the water used to water almond trees as part of the production of almond honey? What do you do with wildflower, clover, or goldenrod honey; plants which no one intentionally waters at all?

Today, however, we’re going to talk about what brewers can do to minimize water usage and why mead makes a tempting choice for the water-miser. (Click here to learn more!)

A Love Letter to Mannaz

Ricky the Meadmaker loves Mannaz
Dear Mannaz,
    I love you and I’m sorry about what I said. Worse than knowing that I’ve lied, really, I’m sorry about what I’m going to keep saying.
    You are not “Valkyrie’s Choice’s little brother.” I know that. The boss knows that. You know that… but you’re just too complex and interesting to sum up for abecedarian mead drinkers. It’s also your fault in a way, since you’re always growing and changing.
    See, there I go again, trying to pass the blame. It’s not your fault that you’re so marvelous and subtle and complex; I made you that way. It just takes a real connoisseur to see everything you are. (Read more.)
