    I didn’t notice a mead thread here yet.

    I’m new-ish to mead. I’ve had a bunch of local garbage and a few of the better regarded ones from the US. I’m planning h to explore some more.

    I have a question, what is the shelf-life of unopened, cellared mead? How long might I hold a bottle of Schramm’s or Superstition before it begins to change? Does it change? Do the particular ingredients make a difference? Doe some mead improve with age? Etc.

    Thanks In advance.

    I don't know much about mead, but recent events have convinced me that it might be well worth looking into. Ken Schramm was a guest at Zwanze 2019 in Elkader, IA, and pours of two of Schramm's meads were included with the ticket price. I started the day with this dark cherry mead, The Statement. It was one of the highlights of the day. Schramm's is now being distributed to Iowa, so things could get...
