My longtime readers will note that BardicBrews.net has a new look to it. There is a shiny new WordPress install with a new theme. And the more astute among you will notice the site works again, and there aren’t any unwanted viagra ads popping up for you to be revulsed by! :-)
Now that the site has been de-hacked, this is as good a time as any to also tell you about the changes to this site. My longtime readers will also know that my meadmaking production — and therefore also the posts to this site — have slowed way down in the past couple of years. There are a variety of reasons for this, some of them personal, others not…. but the bottom line is that I have decided that once my current batches in production have been bottled, I am going to take an extended break from meadmaking. I don’t want to commit to retiring, but for now activity on this site will slow down even more. I am more focused on audio engineering these days, and it occupies more and more of my time and attention. I find myself not complaining about this. While I still love mead and hold it in extremely high regard, it’s time for me to move on to a new chapter in my life.
As a result, there are no longer products available for purchase here, namely my meadmaking eBook, The Lore And Craft Of Mead. If anyone out there is reading this and wants a copy, contact me and we will work something out.
Those of you who would like to keep up with my activities can do so most effectively at www.CraftedRecordings.com and www.JamesLindenschmidt.com.
It’s been a hell of a run; I’ve learned so much about mead, honey, bees, alcohol, herbalism, ecosystem health, and community, all as a direct result of my meadmaking practice. I am so grateful! I still hope to see you around a fireside soon!
