SIBA Monthly Meeting – Meadmaking

December 16, 2021 @ 6:30 pm - 8:30 pm

Post meeting: Download the Meadmaking 101 slide deck

Many of you know our club librarian Don Burkart. He has been a VERY successful first, and second-year beekeeper. What you may not know is that Don is a super-talented winemaker. I couldn't be more thrilled. If you have ever thought about taking up wine or mead-making, this is absolutely not a session to miss!

"Like Zeus, the god Dionysus was raised in a cave and fed on honey. Today he is viewed as the god of wine, but his worship came earlier than wine, from the time when mead was the major alcoholic beverage."

Don has been making wine for over 20 years, and will be sharing a few of his tips and tricks on how to produce mead from honey, an alcoholic drink similar to wine. He will be taking us through step-by-step instructions on the process and will cover some terminology, hardware, and ingredients you will need to make your own 'nectar of the gods'.

If you've missed a previous newsletter, find them all archived here.

SIBA Meetings occur the 3rd Thursday of each month through the year with topics being added to the event ahead of each meeting. Meetings are held at 6:30pm at the Sunman American Legion unless otherwise stated ahead of time in the newsletter and website. We're also looking for volunteers to help make the club GO. Contact us to let us know you are interested in helping out!
