What's this beer/mead equivalency, @ATH ? I typed mead and you responded about beer twice, so I'm thinking that I am missing some information here. They're fairly different in taste, to me, and the ingredients are different. Not quarelling, just curious... Anyways, I had some elderberry mead in Bozeman, where I visited my first meadery (who knew they existed?...) last December. Great guys making tasty stuff.So you meant literal beer not like "it sounds like something used to make beer"! Put that down as my "learned something new today". I'm familiar with elderberry wine, but not elderberry beer.
