The Perfect Goth Refrigerator

…filled with bottles of my last batch of mead, prior to labeling.  Yes, the bottles are red.  🙂  This mead batch is a black morat rhodomel, meaning that it is made with black currant juice, mulberry juice, and roses.  Like all of my meads it is a metheglin, meaning that it is made with herbs (in addition to the roses), and was brewed with magical intent as part of a 15-month cycle, with the steps in its process corresponding to lunar cycles and astrological configurations during that period.  It is fairly strong as a result of multiple fermentations, and has more of a barleywine character than the sweetness that most people associate with mead.

The mead that I am currently brewing is based on killer bee and sunflower honey, with herbs corresponding to its more golden tone.  That one won’t be ready to bottle for many months to come.
