Joe's Ancient Orange Cinnamon Clove Mead



A friend of mine mentioned something about making mead and I started looking into it. Joe's Ancient Orange Cinnamon Clove Mead seems to be a great way to get started in mead making so we gave it a shot. It's supposed to be foolproof. We intend to test that assertion.

This picture is before we topped it off with water.

Great choice - Joe's Ancient was the first (and only) mead I have made, and it turned out great! It couldn't be simpler - just add the ingredients and let it sit! It was refreshing to not have to worry about gravity readings, yeast starters, etc... One note - I wound up aging mine a bit longer than the recipe states - probably 3.5 months - at 2 months it still tasted a bit "hot" to me. I bottled it up as a Mother's Day Mead and all the moms I gave it to loved it!

Thanks Jim. Happy to hear another success story. It is really easy. What kind of honey did you use? I used coarse filtered clover from Northern Brewer.
