If you are brewing for the sake of the flavors, have at it! This mead pairs exceptionally well with a tray of figs, goat cheese, candied ginger, sugared flowers and toasted almonds.
If you are brewing this to create a sacred libation and calling on the energies and presence of a specific deity, consider this a ritual. Put on appropriate music, light candles, set your space and your intention, and act with consideration as befits your tradition.
I tend to brew this every August, when the season of summer is high and Persephone starts looking forward to returning to the Underworld and Demeter is in full bloom and fertile fields. This means that it is ready for toasting Persephone’s return in Spring of the following year.
