BaltiBrew has been invited by its sister/brother club Wootown to attend its annual mead brew event at the home of Wootown members Lloyd and Ruth Ann Snyder in Whitehall, MD. The date is Nov. 8th, and it usually starts halfway early around 9 or 10 am. I’ll post further details as to exact times in the comments section.
If you’re unfamiliar, mead is fermented honey â€” watch a viking movie, or read Beowulf or something, sheesh. The Snyders run an apiary â€” they’re beekeepers, so they have plenty of honey available. Between Lloyd and the other members of Wootown â€” myself included â€” there should be plenty of knowledge about beer, mead, and brewing in general to go around. Some folks bring equipment to brew as well as make mead â€” me included â€” so it’s not a honey-only affair. Lloyd and Ruth Ann’s property is gorgeous, and â€” assuming the weather cooperates â€” it’s a great fall outing.
These events follow potluck rules, so bring something to share. The BaltiBrew contingent is likely to be the only vegetarian/vegan populated group, so make sure you bring something of that type if you’ve got such restrictions.
If you want to take home a carboy of mead, you’ll need to bring some money. I’ll also post further details as to exact amounts in the comments as I find out, but it’s usually around $30.
Hope to see many of you there.
