Ken Schramm, owner of Schramm’s Mead and the author of The Compleat Meadmaker, joins us to talk about mead. Mead is an alcoholic beverage created by fermenting honey with water, sometimes with various fruits, spices, grains, or hops. Schramm’s Mead is widely regarded as some of the best mead in the world. We learn a lot from Ken in this episode including the process behind producing a mead and growing the fruit that is used in Schramm’s meads. We dive into detail about apples, too, especially apple varieties that are not familiar to American grocery stores. You can learn more about Schramm’s Mead at http://schrammsmead.com. Thanks for listening! We would love it if you subscribed to Heard! and left us a review.
