In reply to:

It is entirely possible that the only beer worse than Iron City is Iron City Lite.




Obviously you've never tried Club beer!

Mead is for pansies.... j/k

Actually, I've had decent mead and I've had horrid mead. Properly made (not over-spiced) I find it quite enjoyable and thirst-quenching.

Do you have to make your own, or can it be bought?

I had to stop drinking mead. It started to make me feel "pretty". Might work if I could find beer nuts with the shells on or some really big, manly pretzels laced with testosterone.

I'm with Peter. Meads vary from sublime to Bug Spray. My personal efforts tended towards the latter. To me, the best ones are the sweet, dessert wine type. Like late harvest Reisling, but honey flavored.

It is actually quite difficult to achieve a sweet mead, because honey ferments out completely. It is not uncommon for a dry mead to have a specific gravity "thinner" than water because there are literally no residual sugars. Sweet meads require very careful yeast management whereby the strain of yeast is susceptible to being "killed off" by the increasing alcohol content during fermentation.

Spiced mead is called Metheglin. Mead with fruit is called Melomel, with malt "Braggott". Love those names. Check out the
BJCP Guidelines for more info.

There are many fine commercial Meaderies. They are typically small, local operations. A good wine shop should be able to help you.

twodan, you can also use beer to soak your wood chips before BBQ'ing. I've reserved a few bottles of bad homebrew (was supposed to be a Scottish ale, but it is just WAY too sweet, syrupy and strong) for that purpose. Works real well.

Sipping on a cognac tonight. It was labeled as an XO but only cost $20 at Trader Joes. Claude Chatelier or something like that. For $20 it's a good buy. Very strong orange flavors, a little wood/tobacco, and a bit of heat on the finish, but pleasant and very clean nonetheless.
The Portuguese beer "Super Bock" they have at TJ's is definitely something to not write home about - unless your letter starts, "I had the most unremarkable beer today..."

I just finished a 40 of Cobra Malt Liquor. Best buck 49 I've spent in a while.
