Unlock the mead-brewing secrets of the ancient Norse with homesteader, fermentation enthusiast, and self-described "Applalachian Yeti Viking" Jereme Zimmerman.
In Make Mead Like a Viking, ZImmerman shows how to embrace traditional Nordic culture and rituals surrounding mead through experimentation in fermentation and flavor. Whether you're new to homebrewing or looking to expand your brewing and fermentation practices, Zimmerman will help you craft a sense of wild authenticity and individuality into your homemade brews - from sweet, semi-sweet, and dry meads, melomels (fruit meads), and methegins (spiced meads) to bragots (honey beers), grog, and more.
Zimmerman also provides in-depth information:
Grounded in history and mythology but focused on a natural and self-sufficient approach, Make Mead Like a Viking is a practical and entertaining guide for all ages.
Jereme Zimmerman grew up on his parents’ northern Kentucky goat farm, Twin Meadows, where he was also homeschooled. After graduating from Berea College in Berea, Kentucky, he moved to the Pacific Northwest, where he immersed himself in the world of homebrewing.
As the world’s only peace-loving, green-living Appalachian Yeti Viking, Zimmerman writes, blogs, and speaks regularly on fermentation, mead-making, homesteading, and good eating. He is a regular contributor to various publications and websites, including New Pioneer and Backwoods Home magazines.
He writes for Earthineer.com as “RedHeadedYeti.” He currently lives in Berea with his wife, Jenna, and daughters, Sadie and Maisie, where he practices urban homesteading and cavorts with farmers, authors, and fellow sustainable-living enthusiasts.
