    Hey Mike

    A 1 gal batch?  What are you going to do in week 3??  LOL  Seriously, you should start batch #2 right away, as they do take some time to age.

    Sounds yummy. Thanks for the recipe. Think if I was in your part of the world..Yukon Jack should be on the menu. That stuff can fight the chill banes. Can also make folks fall out of tree stands when trying to slay evil Bambis. lol. Along with the gun.

    You might be home before it reaches it's prime! We wait at least 8-9 months after fermentation has stopped before sampling our mead. We have some mead that's close to two years old!

    I got a quick mead recipe that take about 1 1/2 months. Well see how it comes out. On the other hand Im going to make a UDS here but I have very limited time for the internet right now. Can one of you please post a good link for a how to thread step by step I can print off. Parts list would be good too. THANKS MUCH! I have 9 more days till they turn the wifi on here for us.
