What is mead made from?

Honey, water & yeast. to make it, bring 1 pot of water to a rolling boil. Add the honey(1 or 2 cups), keep it a a rolling boil, then add the yeast. After 30 mins of low boiling, cool it down. Then put it into a big jug(use a carbonized to make it hard), wait a month or two depending on the proof you want. then you can bottle it and enjoy. p.s. you'll want to sanatize EVERYTHING that you are using before you begin.

Why when the toilet got clogged in an old house the water rose to the top and stopped but did not keep flowing as is normally the case?

User Avatar
blockage in the toilet itself...where it cant be seen. Sometime, wires from toilet deodorizers, tampons, kids toys, etc. get hung in the pathways of the toilet itself. It then blocks waterflow...but cant be seen. A special tool, a toilet auger, can be used to carefully pull out, or push thru any blockage. good luck
