Home production of honey wine from your first batch to award-winning fruit and herb variations.

As one of the most ancient of human beverages, mead arose in part because it was easy to make. Today’s hobbyists rediscover the simplicity of making mead while reveling in the range of flavors that can result. In The Compleat Meadmaker, veteran beverage hobbyist Ken Schramm introduces the novice to the wonders of mead. With easy-to-follow procedures and simple recipes, he shows  how you can quickly and painlessly make your own mead at home. In later chapters he introduces flavorful variations on the basic theme that lead to meads flavored with spice, fruits, grapes and even malt.

Pros: Overall well written
Cons: A little (very little) vague in some sections

This is considered by many to be the BIBLE of mead making books. Schramm covers everything really well as far as the different types go.Has a recipe section in the back.Talks about the history a little,covers the different types of honey and yeast in depth in seperate chapters,even goes over how to judge the fruit you buy for melomels,overall 4.5 out of 5 for me
