    Hey there fellow Historians!My name is Jenny.  I live in Portland, Oregon (well, okay, I live in Hillsboro, which is sorta a suburb of Portland) with my husband, my four year old son named William, and my really really cool puppy named Catie.On a side note, my family and I are into reenactment, and are involved with a group that does Medieval reenactment.  In particular we study the history of the British Isles, and our characters are based in the sixteenth century (Mid-Tudor Era).  We are also avid homebrewers who make quite a bit of MEAD.  (We love the stuff and it's really too bad that so many people haven't had the chance to try it.)  So if you have any questions in particular about medieval brewing methods, I'm happy to answer any questions you may have to the best of my ability.Thanks for taking a look at this, and Happy Listening!Jenny (and Husband)AKA Mary and Merrick

    Welcome to the forums!I've been wanting to get in to reenactment for a little while but there are not many good places to go in the part of England in which I live. I have never drank mead before, though I am looking to give it a go eventually.

    A fellow PDXer!  Welcome!That's really awesome that you're into reenactment.  Are you with the SCA or another group?Also: I've been really tempted to make some mead, myself.  I just wonder if I have the patience required to make it.  It's got such a long brew time!Jamie

    As of late, I have been with SCA, though I've done a couple different avenues.  As for making mead, it is, by far, worth the time to make it.  It can take a bit, though there are a number of different ones that require a fairly minimal ferment/aging (6 months or so).  If you're interested, let me know and I'd be happy to pass along some tips (I may also have a spare bottle in my private stash).  Cheers!Jenny

    Heh, if it's the SCA then you might know a couple of my friends!Right now Melissa and I are in the middle of moving.  But I think once we're all settled in, I'm going to get some local raw honey and start a batch of mead.  I'm dying to give it a shot!And I'd never pass up the chance to have a glass of mead.  ;)
