Mead—made from as little as honey, water, and yeast—is so simple that it’s been around for thousands of years, but it can be mastered! Learn from Moonlight Meadery’s founder and master meadmaker Michael Fairbrother. Turning honey into mead involves so much more than just the base ingredients. Learn how factors such as time, temperature, and nutrients affect mead—from the water source and the age of the honey to the flowers the bees visit—and sample some BJCP mead styles along the way.
