Finalist, BEST BOOK, International Association of Culinary Professionals
With fantastical narratives, home-brewing instructions, and original craft cocktail recipes, Mead is the ultimate exploration of the resurgent alcoholic beverage that is nearly as old as time itself.

Beloved by figures as diverse as Queen Elizabeth and Thor, the Vikings and the Greek gods, mead is one of history’s most storied beverages. But this mixture of fermented honey isn’t just a relic of bygone eras — it’s experiencing a cultural renaissance, taking pride of place in trendy cocktail bars and craft breweries across the country. Equal parts quirky historical narrative, DIY manual, and cocktail guide, Mead is a spirited look at the drink that’s been with us even longer than wine.

Mead gives readers a fascinating introduction to the rich story of this beloved beverage — from its humble beginnings to its newfound popularity, along with its vital importance in seven historic kingdoms: Greece, Rome, the Vikings, Poland, Ethiopia, England, and Russia. Pairing a quirky, historical narrative with real practical advice, beverage expert Fred Minnick guides readers through making 25 different types of mead, as well as more than 50 cocktails, with recipes from some of the country’s most sought-after mixologists.

Bubbles is a fabulous seasonal yeast strain from Imperial Organic Yeast, arriving just in time for the harvests of fall! It is used in fruit and honey fermentation, and as such is the perfect yeast to use when making cider or mead. However, it can be used in other fruit juice fermentation as well. When fermenting at the lower end of its temperature range, Bubbles can create a clean flavor profile that allows fruit and honey notes to shine through! Cultivated on a purely gluten-free medium, this is a great strain to use in gluten-free cider and meadmaking!

More About This Title

From the book description, check product page for current description, price and availability:

You’re ready to try your hand at home brewing, but you want to try something unique—and you also have no idea where to start. This is the book for you. Broken into three sections—mead, cider, and herbal wine—you’ll learn what basic equipment you’ll need, what ingredients to have on hand, and author Nancy Koziol will walk you through each step of the process. Along the way, you’ll pick up some fun facts about ethical consumption, sustainable farming, and the science behind fermenting.
Whether you want to try a simple honey mead, a crisp apple or pear cider, or a wild wine with herbs foraged from your backyard, in these pages you’ll find the inspiration and instruction you need to follow through to the finished product. Many of these drinks are brewed in a matter of weeks rather than months, so you don’t even have to be particularly patient! Once you get the hang of the basics, try experimenting with the suggested seasonal additions, or whatever fruit, herb, or spice is ready for harvest (or on sale at the local market). Add some ginger to your cider, some blackberries to your wine, or some pumpkin to your mead for brews that are truly your own.
With a unique focus on local, seasonal produce and sustainable farming practices, this will appeal to seasoned brewers who are looking for something new as well as eco-conscious millennials ready to impress their friends on Instagram. Fascinating tidbits of trivia, information on health benefits, and a dash of humor make this book as entertaining as it is useful.

Mead Science is the mead book that takes a scientific approach to understanding mead, yeast, and fermentation for both the scientific and non-scientific minded. This book takes the complex and advanced science behind yeast and fermentation and breaks it down so it is understandable to everyone. Mead Science starts off with a brief synopsis on mead, the meadmaking process, and all the equipment needed to ferment, bottle, and keg mead. It then dives in to the biology and chemistry of yeast, nutrition, nutrition protocols, mead additives, honey and sugar, and all of the chemical compounds that make mead what it is. This book also includes chapters on developing mead recipes using standard ratios and explains some of the science behind pairing mead with food. Mead Science is the book for everyone who has wanted to know why exactly they do the things they do when making mead. If you have ever wanted to know why yeast need nutrients, why some meads taste like nail polish, and why fermenting at cooler temperatures results in more aromatic meads, then this is the mead book for you.
