EOutside there lies a great opportunity to go back a few thousand years and follow the footsteps of the great hunter-gatherers that came before us and gather up ingredients to make a mead. Well, maybe not everything, but certainly the one component you need to kick it off…yeast. Our guest this episode is Sam Wineka from Bootleg Biology, purveyor of wild yeasts. They are looking to collect samples from every zip code in the country to include in their already outstanding list of available yeasts. Bradly McArthur sent us an email about some issues he had with an amber brsggot, Dan Shannon also contacted us wanting to know more about conical fermenters, and then we wrap the show with Facebook Friends.

EDo you know what a Jackfruit is? Does anyone? Better yet, has anyone ever made a mead from a Jackfruit? Well, we found a guy who does. Meet Joe Leigh. A software architect by trade got hooked on mead while attending a beer share event, the mead? Ken Schramm’s Black Agnes. he started collecting and trading up, looking for the best meads, and in 2017, started adding yeast to water and honey. He is a multiple award winner, including three Mazer Cups, was inspired to become a certified BJCP Mead Judge, and was listed among the top 10 AMMA 2018 Mead Makers of The year. Joe starts off by telling us about his historical mead, a Tej, that just happened to take the gold at this year’s Valkyries Horn in Minneapolis. Oh, and wait until we get to the Jackfruit part in his interview, you don’t want to miss it!

EValkyries Horn has come and gone, but we’re not done with it yet! In this episode, we discuss the event, the after parties and the most amazing meads ever brewed by home mead makers. The first annual Valkyries Horn was a great success, over 300 entries, 2 days of judging and some ingenious and inspirational recipes washed over the taste buds of those who were lucky enough to try some. What an awesome display of creativity! We wrap the show with a few Facebook Friends dealing with bourbon, oak, pumpkin and more!

Episode 137

At 14 years old, listener William Dial was able to join a Living History group out of the University of Maryland called Markland. They would reenact the culture and battles of the Viking, Saxon and Norman period. During this time, he would learn about the culture and the people of the time and this gave him resources to explore even more. It was just a matter of time before William would learn about Mead. Ryan and Jeff give an update to the Valkyries Horn mead competition in segment 2, and then wrap the show with a few Facebook friends. Valkyries Horn is right around the corner, September 27-28 and the Mead House is sponsoring the braggot category. We hope to see many of you there as the whole Mead House crew will be in attendance!
