Make Mead Like a Viking - July 13th from 2:00 PM - 5:00 PM - Price: $81
Workshop Instructor: Jereme Zimmerman

​​Learn to make your own mead (honey wine) using techniques that have been utilized by ancient cultures since the first discovery of bubbling honey and its magical effects. Wild-crafting and spontaneous-fermentation techniques will be the focus, but other mead-making practices will also be discussed. Be prepared for an engaging, interactive discussion on mead, Vikings, and the simplicity of fermenting your own honey-based alcoholic beverages. Intermediate techniques and suggestions for experimentation will be discussed as well. Class will likely take a little over two hours but Jereme will be available the full two and a half hours should anyone wish to learn a bit more or have follow-up questions.
