Another 34 Bottles of Mead.

My hard toil cleaning the bottles finally paid off, and Friday I could finish off my ninth batch of mead by corking 34 bottles for the cellar.

All that remains for me to do is cleaning up the bottles, and printing and applying some labels.

Very soon, I am going to start up another brew (#13), and then slowly begin to prepare another batch of bottles (I still have three more demi-johns/carboys containing about 25 liters each sitting in the basement, awaiting getting bottled).

Time-consuming as it is, brewing mead still feels so rewarding when another brew has been completed and is ready for enjoying!


  1. That's a lot of mead! Do you have access to a cheap source of honey, then?

    1. Well, sort of. I buy when I can get it at a good price - the 10 kilos I am using for the next brew has been sitting in the basement since December last year (yes, quite a pause from brewing, but honey rarely goes bad).
