Capsicumel

A Capsicumel mead is a mead with chili as the main flavor ingredient aside from the honey.
The pepper spiciness(capsicum) can vary with the intended strength of the brewer, but should preferably balance and complement the honey
As with any mead, the honey sweetness will also vary according to the brewer’s intentions. We find Capsicumels with sweetness ranging from dry, semi-sweet and all up to the sweeter meads.
While many prefer the capsicumel to be a still type mead, there is nothing that would prevent a brewer to make this mead sparkly, or even petillant ( low carbonated)

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 ....)
