Sat, Oct 7, 10am-1pm Beginning Home Mead Making Class
Always wanted to learn to make your own meads at home? Love the idea of giving something yummy and homemade to friends? Scared to mess it up? Then Starrlight Mead has the class for you.
You will be taken step by step through the process of making a “cyser” (honey and apple). You will learn how to properly sanitize and about the equipment needed to make a great homemade mead! You will take home your own gallon of mead, made during the class, with instructions on what to do with it when you get home. No mead-making experience is necessary.
All class participants must be over 21 – no exceptions. The registration deadline is Sun, Oct 1. $75 for individuals or $100 for couples.
Sat, Oct 21, 10am-1pm Intermediate Home Mead Making – Traditionals: Honey and Yeast
This intermediate class discusses how to make a good, traditional mead. It’s harder than many people think to create an environment that will keep the yeast happy. You’ll start with honey and how the different flavors of varietal honey can impact the flavor of the mead. Participants will be tasting honey, varietal traditional meads, and a yeast experiment to see how the decision of ingredients can impact the finished mead. You’ll also cover yeast nutrients to keep the little “yeasty beasties” happy!
All class participants must be over 21 – no exceptions. The registration deadline is Sun, Oct 15. $50 for individuals or $75 for couples.
