Mead

I've just bottled up my first batch of mead. It's taken 5 months to get to this stage and I reckon another month in the bottles before it's at it's best.

The colour of it is very pale yellow, which may put a few people off and there's a noticeable dryness to the taste, but I'm putting that down to me having used a Champagne yeast.

Overall I'm happy with the results as you can actually drink it and it packs a wallop, not sure about the final ABV, but I'm guessing it's higher than 12%.
