About the The Compleat Meadmaker

Excellently written, immensely informative, eloquent, entertaining, and clear in directions. I am extremely thankful that this was the first book that I read on meadmaking, because it explains and defines steps and terms that help put other books into context. Additionally, it is written in a passionate and engaging style that is packed with practical information, and can easily hold the interest of any reader, even one not inclined towards meadmaking itself. If you’re going to read books on brewing mead, make this your first one, and if you only buy one book on the subject, make it this one.
