6-19-18 Tonight we're up to a couple of things. We're going to do some chat tonight around our to-brew lists, mistakes we've learned from, equipment we didn't know we needed when we got started, and other things. AND, we're happy to welcome Fred Minnick, author and speaker. Fred gave the Mead Cocktails talk at the 2018 AMMA MeadCon. Wall Street Journal-bestselling author Fred Minnick loves his bourbon so much that he’s written three books on the subject: Whiskey Women, Bourbon Curious and Bourbon: The Rise, Fall and Rebirth of An American Whiskey, which Smithsonian Magazine recognized as one of the best food books of 2016 and won Tales of the Cocktail’s Spirited Awards’ Best Book. That’s right, bourbon is a food. So is rum. Oh yeah, he wrote Rum Curious, which Atlanta Journal Constitution named one of the best drinks books of 2017. Fully admitting that he has a book writing addiction, Minnick wrote Mead: The Libations, Legends, and Lore of History’s Oldest Drink.
