Awesome to hear it worked out well. I should have new swarms for my hive and plan on getting another. I really do like the sound of that recipe. :D

Have to say that I wasn't quite sure about the taste at first but as I've had more over the last few weeks I'm really beginning to enjoy it's flavours. Sherry is the only thing I can compare it to. I'm going to start up another batch - perhaps with a smaller cinnamon stick this time as I found the cinnamon flavour quite strong.

Interesting factoid- I saw something a couple of weeks ago on TV on booze, and there was a bloke making mead that said if the wort (for want of a better word) is boiled before adding the yeast it denatures the antibacterial enzymes in the honey that supress the yeast, and this make for a quicker fermentation. I know that recipe posted above specifically says DON'T BOIL, but I reckon if you're in a hurry and cared a little less about the flavour then it'd be the way to go!

Nice, how inspirational! I love a bit of mead and hope to have a go at brewing some at home in the future. If it was one of the earliest fermented beverages, how hard could it be? (Famous last words)
