Learn the secrets to making mead–and take home your own gallon to ferment at home–at this hands-on class taught by apiarist, Robert MacKimmie of City Bees. Speculated to be mankind’s first fermented beverage, mead is easy to make at home, yet fine enough to serve at special occasions (read: no better way to impress guests at your next party). Participants will mix their gallon of mead under Robert’s ever-watchful eye, ensuring delicious results. The class will also discuss and review more advanced recipes for Cyser (apple and honey wine) and Melomel (fruit and honey). Best of all, plenty of tasty samples will be provided. Each participant goes home with a gallon jug of mead and recipes, ready to ferment!
Instructor: Apiarist Robert MacKimmie has successfully tended bees for 16 years. He manages 70 hives, mostly in San Francisco, producing neighborhood-based, micro-climate honeys.
