Mead! The Nectar of the Gods!

Post by Kheron » Mon May 18, 2020 11:19 am

Fuck were they ever right about that. Had my first (and second) mead two days ago, then went and got more of the first yesterday. Dansk Mjød, Viking Blod, is the one I would recommend of the two (hence why I bought it twice). It is a Danish mead based off a recipe from the 1700s. The other was a Baltimore brand called Charm City, Elderberry flavor. Charm City's was tart & dry with no hint of honey or the thick feeling of it. Viking Blod, though? Stronger, richer, deeper flavor. Even if you take a sip that feels like it's about to kick you in your pants the feeling of the honey immediately follows, so it basically has a built in chaser.

And it's instantly become my favorite drink. So delicious, alcoholic enough to have a good time (19%) and not get fucking BLITZED like a retarded frat boy trying to black out 30 minutes into the night.

Why in the ever loving fuck is mead not more popular?! The Scandinavians had it right...hundreds of years ago. Like, they won. They perfected alcohol. If you like good things, treat yourself to a bottle. If you only enjoy stuff so shitty you hate yourself after every drink, idk what to tell you.

Doesn't mead have something to do with the ol' scurvey-roo?

Not that I've read. Scurvy is a vitamin C deficiency anyway.

I would assume that mead is just a niche drink. The recipe that I'm going to make soon requires 18lbs of honey to do 12 gallons. That shit is expensive. Grape slurry concentrate would be much cheaper to make, least from the prices I've seen. Mead is also very different from most other drinks in terms of flavor.

You can make a gallon of mead with about a pound and a half of honey. Go head and try it.

I definitely wanna try making my own mead some time, that would be cool. Might even try to bottle & sell some mead if it's pretty good.
