How to Make Mead

You can make this delicious and refreshing wine that requires no ingredients beyond yeast, water and honey.

Jar of honey
The jar of honey in this photo will be used to brew several gallons of mead. The brewing process is fast — it only takes about an hour. But it will be quite some time before the mead is ready to drink. Mead should age for a minimum of one year. The glasses in this photo are filled with mead that has been allowed to age for five years.
