Mead-ium Rare

Ask for mead at your local liquor store and you may be met with a puzzled look, but you can start your own honey wine revival with this comprehensive mead making kit. A golden, honey-based liquor, mead is the ancestor of all fermented beverages, originating in Asia over 9,000 years ago. It also flows through the history of the ancient world and medieval Europe, and inspires the familiar term "honeymoon" (the first month of marriage, when couples would toast with mead). This kit makes you part of this rich and exclusive history with everything you'll need to make a half gallon of your own mead to celebrate your honeymoon or share with friends and family.

Assembled in Illinois with the following components:
One 1/2 Gallon Glass Carboy
Carboy Cap
Cane Siphon
Siphon Filter Cap
Stopper with Hole
No-Rinse Sanitizer
Florida Harvest Organic Honey
Oak Chips

Norse Hutchens' first experience with home-brewing came from watching his Dad and Uncles as they got together late on weekend nights to bring their latest homebrew recipes to life. Since then, Norse has developed a passion for home-brewing that has followed him his entire life.

Since his early first experience, he has made it a personal quest to seek out, research, and explore the best ways to make the most flavorful and satisfying home brew recipes. With the help of a community of friends and Brew Masters from across the nation Norse has put together a number of kits that compile years of collective experience and trade secrets. Each of the kits that are offered highlight an approachable recipe and method that are meant to lead the beginner into the complex craft of home brewing, while also offering the veteran a satisfying experience with a delicious result.

Great gift for the mead-lover in your life


My husband really likes mead and he enjoyed the opportunity to brew it at home on his own!

Baltimore, MD


Very disappointed...


Although the kit was complete, the glass itself arrived shattered. When I spoke to customer service and explained the situation, they resent a replacement kit without the glass! Was hoping for a better outcome for something that was supposed to be a gift for my sister.

Tampa, Florida


Fun to do

Nice starter kit


Nice starter kit for beginners. The kit itself was great. Better off ordering this off another site . I would not order from uncommon goods again. Customer service was rude and unprofessional when we called. Acted like we were an inconvenience for calling.



Great product


I gave as a gift to my grandson.

Logandale, nv


Awesome gift idea


My dad absolutely loved this

Warrenton, VA




This was a unique, fun, and thoughtful gift. However, the yeast was supposed to be kept cold, and we didn't realize that until the gift was opened. Overall, this was an amazing product and I will definitely consider buying more of these kits.

Hagerstown, MD


Great product!


My son was very happy to receive this kit.
