My son and I tried our hand at mead for the first time... I didn't notice a lot of bubbling I thought that it wasn't fermenting correctly but my son thought differently, he's 17. Lol

But when we went to bottle it after the normal 2-week. We tasted it and it tasted sour kind of musty It wasn't a good flavor.

Does anybody possibly know what we could have done wrong?

Thank you.

On a side note he decided to try to make ginger beer and I felt that the ginger beer had a similar taste to it not as strong as the mead but still it was there.

Could it be the tub that we're using?

Thanks ahead for the help

I've had spicy to sweet tasting meads but usually the beewax like musky smell its always there its usually mellow and the addition of one kind of fruit or some sort can change the flavor and smell entirely

mead is a ancient drink often strong and not always pleasant when its just water and honey yes it gets a musky beeswax like smell but often people add some kind of fruit ...I was thinking of elderberry that stuff is delicious
