I'm not much of a drinker myself, wine or anything else but I like making it. We have a winery close to the house and the first time I went on a
tour I was surprised to learn that they employed a vintner with a PhD in chemistry. I thought that wine making must be really difficult if it
requires that level of education.
Then I started reading and realized how simple it really is. When I jumped in to wine-making it was with fear and trepidation and some batches were
better than others but so far they've all been drinkable.
Since I make it to give away as gifts/barter items, I don't bother with whiskey because I don't know anyone who drinks whiskey. Definitely will be
trying your mead recipe though.
In fact, I'll be making little baskets of homemade goodies this year to give out as xmas presents. Homemade liquors, breads, etc.
