i spent most of the day yesterday with j + v who have been hard at play learning the ins and outs of brewing their own mead. apple pie mead, strawberry mead, pina colada mead, mead mead! part of their operation follows a low-tech process that has been dubbed "macgyver mead," as the materials used in the brew itself and the storage and implements used to facilitate the process can be found around the house or at the market. we sampled apricot and blackberry mead and discussed how one would go about brewing mead inside of a pumpkin. take that macguyver. autumn project number one? yes!
