I started thinking about mead and the process of turning honey, water and yeast into a delicious alcoholic beverage. Then a thought crossed my mind. If you could turn what's basically sugary honey water into alcohol, couldn't you do the same thing, but instead of using honey, you used real maple syrup? I see many similarities with honey and maple, and I know maple syrup is used in brewing all the time, so I don't think I'm too far out in left field. I was wondering if any of you have thought about this, or maybe even tried brewing a batch of 'maple mead' on their own!
