    After reading another thread in the forums, I realized it had been 7 months since making the BHP mead and wanted to give it a taste.  So I opened up a small bottle and sat on the back porch to watch some April snow in Indiana and see how it's doing.It's pretty much where I thought it would be.  Amazing golden color, with a nice small honey crisp scent, and a wonderful honey flavor with huge huge alcohol heat!  It's still a bit "green" and needs to age another several months. :)If any of you find yourselves in Indianapolis, Indiana, let me know and I'll get you a bottle.  Will try again around the year mark.

    That looks fantastic!  I wish I was closer so I could give it a shot, but it's a bit of a commute to get to Indiana from Portland.  ;)

    I could send it to you as a “collector's bottle,” that just happens to still contain the mead. ;)

    Is this a straight Mead, no flavoring additives? Such as berries or herbs?

    This one is just a mead. I've done some melomels and metheglins, but wanted this one to be straight honey wine.

    I only recently started to get into Mead.  I'm really into the stuff produced by B Nektar out of Michigan, the stuff is great.  While it's obviously not fermented as long (Alcohol content is only 5-8%), its certainly tasty and a great alternative to the Pale Ales / IPA's that I traditionally drink.I'm from around Chicago, so if I can get that stuff here, I'm sure it's available in Indiana.. not so sure about Portland though Jamie.. but maybe![img]https://flic.kr/p/hHFak5[/img]  (Not my photo), this one is my favorite that I've had so far.EDIT: Image did not pull in, here is link.  https://flic.kr/p/hHFak5

    B. Nektar does have good stuff! They inspired me for my latest mead, a “session mead” made with apple cider and hazelnut that is clocking in around 6.5%, about half my usual ABV.

    I just had my celebratory post-move tasting of the BHP Mead and loved it!  Thank you so much, James!
