Make Mead Like a Viking: Traditional Techniques for Brewing Natural, Wild-Fermented, Honey-Based Wines and Beers
A complete guide to using the best ingredients and minimal equipment to create fun and flavorful brews Ancient societies brewed flavorful and healing meads, ales, and wines for millennia using only intuition, storytelling, and knowledge passed down through generations―no fancy, expensive equipment or degrees in chemistry needed. In Make Mead Like a Viking, homesteader, fermentation enthusiast, and self-described “Appalachian Yeti Viking” Jereme Zimmerman summons the bryggjemann of the ancient Norse to demonstrate how homebrewing mead―arguably the world’s oldest fermented alcoholic beverage―can be not only uncomplicated but fun.

In addition, aspiring Vikings will explore: • The importance of local and unpasteurized honey for both flavor and health benefits; • Why modern homebrewing practices, materials, and chemicals work but aren’t necessary; • How to grow and harvest herbs and collect wi...

Savannah Bee Company Black Sage Honey 20oz
Black Sage Honey is very unique and rare. It is light in color with a complex but mild taste. Black Sage, Salvia mellifera, is a wild desert sage that grows in the Sierra Nevada mountains. To produce enough blossoms for honeybees to make a crop of Black Sage Honey, this desert plant must get just the right amount of rain at just the right time of year. Many years can pass before black sage plants experience this delicate balance of rainfall and aridness, which is one reason why Black Sage Honey is so special. Black Sage is a very unique, rare honey harvested only four seasons per decade from regions like the Sierra Nevada Mountains. An extraordinarily mild and delicious honey, Savannah Bee's Black Sage provides a subtle herbaceous flavor ideal for savory recipes or by the spoonful. This rare and exceptional treat is worth the wait!
