I wanted to update this. I received a generous supply of two different varieties of hops from mickameyers and brewed two separate five gallon batches of what is probably closer to an Amber that what I intended it to be. In each of the batches I switched the bittering hops and aroma hops. There is a slight difference in taste between the two batches but both turned out pretty well. I will try all grain next.

For some reason I got 53 12oz bottles from one batch and 52 from the second. I chilled a few for five days before doing the taste test. I have been told that it will keep getting better if left to age longer. This will last me about six months if not longer depending on what I share with friends.

I found three containers of 3lb each of clover honey for 99 cents each at a closing sale at a local mom and pop store so the thought did cross my mind. So far I have just used it on toast.

What is the average alcohol content of your mead?

and as soon as I get this square foot gardening down to a science.


I am only new to the forum and this post of yours is a little old now, so don't know if you got the square foot thing sorted. Forget the 1 square foot rule and work on 600mm x 600mm (2ft x 2ft) rule. If you are making a raised garden, make it 4ft wide and multiples of 2ft long. Using string or something, grid out the patch in 2ft x 2ft squares. You will find in a garden that you can't comfortably reach more than 2ft, so at 4ft wide, you can reach the centre from both sides. Also instead of planting out in long continuous rows, you simply fill each 2ft x 2ft square. If a plant requires 2ft spacing, plant one per square. If it requires 6" spacings, plant 4 x 4 = 16 plants per square. You will find you will get far greater density use out of your garden instead of planting out in rows.
