comment Strange aftertaste in mead?
have you read the closet of sir kenelm digby knight opened? gutenberg.org/ebooks/16441 it's got about 60-70 ancient mead recipes. one thing i've noticed is that all of them advise boiling the honey very well, which i've seen discouraged in newer recipes (i suspect without reason). i've only made a little bit of mead, but the recipe i use is based on my synthesis of what's in that book and so far they taste good.
