Yuletide Mead

The mead brews

Slowly

Little bubbles flow up

The honey-water froths

Life begins

 

Bees’ labor

Water’s blessing

Yeast’s life

 

Kvasir’s blood

Gunnlöð’s charge

Odin’s drink

Aegir’s pride

 

 

A month and Yuletide

A gift to loved ones

 

A raised glass

A raised horn

Cheer and warmth in Winter

    Did you start a new batch? My most recent batch is ready about now. Mead with just enough citrus flavor that it’s slightly tart.

      Yup, 3 new batches just got started, all 1 gallon batches. Two meads, one dry and one sweet, and a sweet mead with 1 oz of Juniper berries.
