I don't remember in what types of drinks. I'll look when I get home.
>I would love for someone to try this out and tell us about it.Did I mention I brew? Both beer and mead (and hopefully wine soon,
too). I've been itching to do a cyser (apple mead), but maybe I
can find cherries enough for this... yummy yummy yummy... :)
Plans are right now to attend Pennsic this year, maybe... I might
luck into a 2- or 4-week "immersion language training" trip to
St. Petersburg this fall; dates TBA, but it may overlap... We'll
see. If I make it to Pennsic, and I get a batch of this mead made,
bank on my bringing it there....
