Who are these strange fellows?

I want a drink imMEADiatley!

Its a firm belief here at Manbench Industries that one can never have too many skills, brewing Mead is a skill, so why not learn it, .... no arguments? well thats sorted then, time to learn how to brew mead. Ive started with quite a basic 'ancient' recipe, which is a euphemism for 'crude' it seems from what I've learnt from my mead based research. But all signs look promising, day 4 in and things seem to have settled nicely and the bubbling is suggesting its fermenting away nicely. It'll be a good 2 months till we get to try this 'golden nectar' though so it looks like February will be our GLORIOUS MONTH OF MEAD!

The Carpenter.
