I racked my latest mead tonight, hoping it’ll be as good as the very first batch I made back in 2003. I’ve used the same recipe and honey, just increasing the amounts.
For most people, brewing isn’t part of their spiritual practice, but for me it is. I can’t really explain why it just is. I guess part of it is that mead is so closely connected with heathenry. Another part is the craft itself; me being the crafty witch that I am.
Oh, before I forget to tell you; zymosis is another word for fermentation 🙂 Brewing wines and mead is part of my true self. I don’t brew to get drunk, I brew for the craft, to see if I can do better than last time, to be able to offer something good that I made myself to the powers I honour and my friends.
What relation do you have to alcoholic beverages?
Have you tried brewing your own?
