Classification: mead, metheglin, vanilla mead

Kelly Jones asks about whether vanilla works with mead. I respond with YES! very well, indeed. I had a chance to try some last summer and was very impressed. I did not get a recipe, so I had to wing it when it came to making my own.

The unfermented beverage tasted great, it's been bubbling away for over a month. I don't know how many vanilla beans are in one bottle, but I've heard that they are rather potent.

Ingredients: (for 7 gallons)
