Ann Arbor Backyard Beekeepers December Holiday Gala
Ann Arbor, MI 48105 United States + Google Map
December 11, 2018 @ 6:00 pm - 9:00 pm
Join members of Ann Arbor Backyard Beekeepers for a celebration of the year’s beekeeping. Guest speaker tonight is Ken Schramm, owner/head meadmaker at Schramm’s Mead in Ferndale, Michigan, and the author of The Compleat Meadmaker, the current reference text of record on mead making. Ken has been a beer brewer, mead maker and student of honey, fruit and spice since 1988. He has presented at brewing, meadmaking and winemaking conferences from Delaware to Alaska over the past 20+ years, starting in 1994 with the first “Mead Matrix” with Dr. Dan McConnell – a flight of twelve meads made with the same recipe: six from the same honey and different yeast strains, and six with the same yeast strain and different varietal honeys. Ken lives in Troy, Michigan. His talk is “The Science of Taste in Mead Making.”
