I finally put in enough sugar to keep a batch of mead sweet: the rural glyn is very sweet, has a strong maple taste to it, and, though expensive, may be one of my best batches yet.  From an initial taste test, it maintains sweetness with a high alcohol content, which is about ideal.  It is still very cloudy, but in a month or so I will clarify it and bottle it.  So tasty!  Stats:
