Making Mead



Mead is the alcoholic beverage made by the ancient craft of fermenting honey with water and yeast which became a staple of Celtic, Anglo-Saxon, Medieval and Renaissance Britain. Even today, a glass of lightly chilled mead on a summer’s evening is a delight to be savoured.

This practical book by the expert winemakers Bryan Acton and Peter Duncan will inspire you to take up this admirable craft. The book includes chapters on honey selection, mead-making techniques, and forty-two recipes for mead, melomel (using honey mixed with fruit juice), pyment (honey mixed with grapes), hippocras (honey mixed with grapes and herbs), metheglin (spiced medicinal mead), cyser (honey mixed with apples) and other honey drinks.

Authors: Bryan Acton & Peter Duncan. Paperback.
