To make Meade

To make Meade

In interpreting this 18th century receipt for Meade, I started with 2 gallons of water instead of 10 and added 1 quart of honey.   After mixing the water and honey, ginger sliced thin was added and boyled well.  The fluffy white in the picture is the egg white beaten into a froth and added.  The mead is just about ready to bottle as I prepared it three weeks ago and as the receipt states in 2 or 3 weeks you may drink it!
