Title: Favorite book on mead
Post by: musseldoc on November 20, 2012, 04:16:06 PM
I am just getting into meads.  Do you have a favorite book for mead making?  Is there a "how to brew" equivalent for meads?

Here are the 3 that caught my eye on amazon:

Mead: Making, Exhibiting & Judging by Harry Riches

Making Mead (Honey Wine): History, Recipes, Methods and Equipment by Roger A. Morse

The Compleat Meadmaker : Home Production of Honey Wine From Your First Batch to Award-winning Fruit and Herb Variations by Ken Schramm

The Compleat Meadmaker is the only one I own and I like it.  I can't tell you about the others.

Me, too, but I lent my signed copy out several years ago and cannot remember who has it.  They probably have my Barleywine book too.
