We know homemade food tastes better and that ‘from scratch’ offers qualities that store-bought will never achieve. The idea of ‘homemade’ gives us the feeling of healthy, wholesome, and nourishing.
But what about alcohol? Can it really be made well and at home?
You can easily and successfully Be Your Own Brewer of the beverages you enjoy and have a true hand in the libations that you love.
Together we will explore the history of the fermentation of alcohol and see just how ancient and pervasive it is throughout every culture around the world.
Discover how alcohol once was, and still can be, used as a delivery system for superfoods, healing spices and tonic herbs, especially when you craft these drinks at home.
In this class you will gain new insight into mead (aka honey wine) which when consumed in moderation, can be a fun, affordable and healthful addition to your lifestyle.
Creating your own mead, as you will learn how, is the easy and preferred upgrade to buying anything commercially.
Not only will you understand the steps to naturally ferment this beverage but you’ll receive the knowledge and techniques to infuse your creation with different superfoods, superherbs and spices for added effect!
In this live class, you will learn how to custom create your own superfood-superherb blend of probiotic mead!
Recipes & Techniques include:
- Mead (of course!) but also variations called a melo-mel, metheglin, cyser
- Recipes that can be made sweet, dry, or something in-between
- Brew a spectrum of meads with varying alcohol percentages
- The methods for fermenting with store-bought yeast or wild yeast
- Try single-herb recipes or combinations like Labrador tea, Elderflower, Whole-Hive and more...

“I most enjoyed making our own brew to take home and tasting some that was already made. I appreciate the handouts and how organized the class was. I also enjoyed the chaos of the room once we were let loose to go and explore the herbs. Love the stories of the history, that books were read from and mentioned as resources. Thank you! As always I love to attend Light Cellar classes and enjoy sharing LC as a great resource for my own clients.”

“I really recommend the class! I’ve been making my own mead ever since attending it. Getting hands on experience makes mead-making feel easy. It’s really a class that keeps on giving (it’s much cheaper to attend BYOB parties and potlucks now, haha)”

“It was great to learn about. There was so much knowledge to tap into from Malcolm, I’m sure he could talk all weekend about it.”
