Mead Lover’s Digest Shutting Down?

For those that don’t know, the Digest has been a great source of mead making information. I’ve read it for years, and I’d hate to see it go. Still, Dick Dunn, “the Digest janitor” as he likes to call himself, makes a good point:

it’s wrong to hold out the MLD as a potential resource for new meadmakers, and then not deliver the goods. There are 12 new subscribers just since the last digest, who’ve seen absolutely nothing. ¬†And the digest content has been falling year-on-year since 2005

Dick’s announcement triggered an outpouring of support, and he agreed to keep it going for now. The only question now is, will we get meaningful traffic. I don’t know how (or when or if) this story will end, but I just want to say thank you Dick for providing a great resource!

Also of interest to mead makers

Got Mead is the largest mead making forum I know of.

If you could only buy one book on mead making, it would have to be Ken Schramm’s The Compleat Meadmaker.

My own Simple Mead Recipe is a great way to get started making mead.

    I’ve just spent an hour reading various MLD articles and references which I found on Google, yours being the last. I really enjoyed this one also, by the way. Please don’t stop here!

    Hi Peggy,

    The Mead Lover’s Digest was a great resource, but you know what they say about all good things. I understand why Dick shut it down last year, but I’m sad to see it go.
