Mead-Making Kit

Try your hand at making one of the oldest fermented beverages on historical record in your own kitchen with Williams-Sonoma’s Mead-Making Kit – hell, if the ancient Greeks and Hindus made the stuff, it can’t be that tricky, right? Just supply the honey, water [and time: 4 to 6 weeks per batch]; the kit takes care of the rest, providing all the tools (including a 1 gallon glass fermentation jug), plus enough yeast for making five 1-gallon batches . The amount of honey used affects sweetness, so while your first batch mightn’t be to your exact tastes, you’ve got time to modify the recipe as needed.
