hey folks--

For various reasons, I've been making quick meads lately instead of beers,
using a base of 5 lb honey for a 5 gallon batch and throwing in various
spices and/or fruits. Now, this stuff is good in its own way (not having
tasted anybody else's mead, I can't compare it), but it seems quite thin.
How can one add "body" to a quick mead? Add a little DME? More fruit?
Is this a fruitless quest? *ducks* Note that I don't give a FFAARD about
standard styles, I just want a nice summer beverage that doesn't take
more than a month to complete. 1 1/2 gallons of frozen blackberries,
a jug of honey, several million yeasties and I await your suggestions....

Oh, yeah. Why exercise your sarcasm on Jack's maltmill giveaway? Sheesh,
you can hardly call it commercialism when he's giving something away
for nothing! And congrats Jack, I had no idea you'd sold 100 of them.
Want to make fun of something? How about the summer MajorBeer ads?
"Miller Lite - It's __it and that's that!" Pfui.
