Peppermint Mead Update

I bottled the peppermint mead today. It is what it is. It's nice, pleasant but it just doesn't have that "punch". I'm also have mixed feelings about the lavender mead that I bottled on Feburary 24th. I think I'm going to steer my mead making away from metheglins for a while and focus more on what really worked for me. I might try some more fruit meads. For sure this summer, if I have the time to pick them, I'll do another blackberry. The 2 blackberry melomels I've produced were probably my greatest meads. Other's I might venture into; strawberry, blueberry, raspberry, pineapple and maybe a cyser.
