Unlock the mead-brewing secrets of the ancient Norse with homesteader, fermentation enthusiast, and self-described "Appalachian Yeti Viking" Jereme Zimmerman. In Make Mead Like a Viking, Zimmerman shows how to embrace the traditional Nordic culture and rituals surrounding mead through experimentation in fermentation and flavor. Whether you're new to homebrewing or looking to expand your brewing and fermentation practices, Zimmerman will help you craft a sense of wild authenticity and individuality into your homemade brews - from sweet, semi-sweet, and dry meads, melomels (fruit meads), and metheglins (spiced meads) to bragots (honey beers), grog, and more.--COVER.
