Honey, Value Added and Then Some

As we approach the depths of winter, many of us are casting about for a hobby to keep our minds and hands active amidst the cold and dark. My guest this show doesn’t lack for interesting avocations. Bill Angell is a senior mining engineer at Ft. Knox Gold Mine, but he’s also a bee-keeper and first-rate brewer and crafter of wine. We’ll hear about raising bees, harvesting honey and the alchemical magic that transforms it into mead, honey wine.

For those looking to put their toe into the sea of home-brewing, Bill says he got his first recipe for mead from Charlie Papazian’s The Complete Joy of Homebrewing.
