Today, in a desperate attempt to stave off the inevitable writing of a paper, I racked 3-007: The Buckwheat Traditional. This is a show mead in that it is simply buckwheat honey, water, and yeast. I was cautioned against this by some other mazers but I wanted to try it.
Wow! The must tastes sour with some coffee-like bitterness that is not at all unpleasant. I cannot wait to try it after it matures. OG: 1.102; SG: 0.996; ABV: 14.7%
