a Month for Loki: Mead (well, pyment)

For those of you unfamiliar, July has become a festival month of sorts for Loki. Sirius, the dog star, is known as Lokabrenna - Loki's torch or brand. Late July/August is when Sirius rises, and so many of us celebrate Himself in the dog days of summer.

Today I'm making Him this: 

It's not quite mead, but here in Florida, I have concerns about the heat messing up the fermentation process. We don't have basements, our ground isn't dirt so much as it is beach sand, so there's not really a dig down and find cool dirt to store things in. In Florida if you dig too deep you hit water. Seriously, I have white sand beneath my grass in my yard - it's the same stuff as the beach. Anyway, a local pal found an apiary right in our zip code, with fresh orange blossom honey, so I got a few pounds of it and we're experimenting. I'm in the cook down process right now, and it smells heavenly, and Loki's very excited.
