RHBC 2012 Barrel Project – Mead

Currently, the RHBC is hosting a Mead Barrel Project and is inviting all members to make at least a five gallon batch of mead to add to other member contributions that will be aged in a 70 gallon Cabernet wine barrel.

The recipe and yeast will be determined once all 75 gallons (an extra 5 for the Angel’s Share) have been committed.


The cost of a 5 gallon batch to contribute is approximately $50 (at $2.85 per pound of honey) – which is a steal!
