Hi all, I'm a new member, so I haven't had a chance to read all the posts to date yet :-) I've made a Mead a year ago and I was really looking forward to it. Unfortunately it tastes like cough syrup and has a very medicial flavour. I used 2kg honey to make 1 gallon of mead. I'm not sure what mead actually tastes like, so perhaps it has an acquired taste? Does anybody have any tips to lift the flavour to something more palatable, or is it a case of just drinking it when I'm not sober anymore?
