Mead: The Drink of Odin or Maybe Someday Vinegar

What the heck is that? 

Hubby found this article called "How to make Mead today - the cheap, fast, and easy way" over at Storm the Castle.  If you've never been over there, it's pretty cool - lots of DIY, castles, swords, etc.  We don't drink at all, so maybe it's a little weird that we're making honey wine, but that's exactly what that jug is - or what it will be.

Now, when that jug was first filled and topped with that balloon, the balloon hung limply to one side.  Later, I noted with pleasure how good it was making the house smell.  Hubby put his hand on my leg and announced, "it's erect!".  He was looking at that jug on the counter, noting that the balloon had finally risen! Funny man.

Not really sure what we'll do with it when it's done.  Hubby thinks we'll give it as gifts.  I'm wondering how a pair of T-totallers can determine how good the wine turns out.  I mean, we just do not have a palette for alcohol.  We'll see, I suppose.  Perhaps we'll just make vinegar of it.  According to The Vinegar Experiment over at Florida Hillbilly, making vinegar of it should be pretty simple.

It will be some time before we make it that far.  Alcohol takes time and the longer the better.  We'll just have to wait and see.
