The key lime mead I made last December that blatz, Gordon, tschmidlin and I were talking about a while back didn't score as well in the last competition - good score (35 points) but no cigar. So I added a bit of lemon grass to it and entered it at the Commander SAAZ competition in Coco Beach. It evidently was better this way, 'cause it took first in the category and went on to take best of show for mead and cider. The senior judge on that panel said it was the best dry mead he'd ever had.
So I'm pretty happy about that.
