Bracket mead

Backet mead is another name for Braggot mead.
The brewing of a mead which contains malt as a source of sugar. This gives the brew a resemblance to a honeyed ale.
A Bracket should however never be misunderstood as a honeyed ale, as the brewing process is that of both malt and honey. A honeyed ale, on the other hand, is ale which has after fermentation been flavored with honey to sweeten and add character to the brew.

 

Høvdingen
Høvdingen
Høvdingen - Norwegian for Chieftain, is the nickname of the main author on Viking-mjod.no This is a guy who despite having a full job at a normal company, dedicate all his free time to the pursuit of Viking knowledge, especially the use of natural ingredients in food and drinks. This is not to say that this guy is an expert on the subject - just very very interested ... Mead is one of the main interests, but the poor guy, this Chieftain - he has for some odd reason more an interest in the flavors, and less in the effect the alcohol has. Therefore- most of the mead he makes throughout the year - and that could be quite a lot - ends up with his VERY happy friends... ( and no .. there's no waiting list to be new mead-tasters ....)
