    Hi,
    I was thinking about brewing a mead with a plant based milk (cashew or almond, or maybe coconut? Oat milk?), and mix that with honey and brew a milky mead... Would that work? Or would the oil and protein be a hinderance?
    I know oat milk is quite popular for stouts, and there are lactomels using lactose as sugar, but apart from that I couldn't find much in that direction. Did anyone ever try that?

    You can make wine called Blaand from the whey left over from making cheese so it could work?

    Thanks Led Zep... Blaand, interesting, I'll read up on that. You should try it and call it Robert, it would suit your name here. ;-)
