Transferring mead between containers
Airlock for fermentation

Mead is an alcoholic beverage created by fermenting honey with water, sometimes with added fruits or spices. The alcoholic content is normally similar to the one of wine. The defining characteristic of mead is that the majority of the beverage's fermentable sugar is derived from honey. It may be dry or sweet. The terms "mead" and "honey-wine" often are used synonymously.

In the mead presentation, you will learn how to make your own mead by fermenting a mixture of honey and water, together with some tricks helping one avoid common mistakes. The presentation is designed for small scale fermenting, typically 10-40 liters.
