Mead—Mix and Make—the Wiccan way.


“What is it?” I asked.

“You’ll have to open it,” John said.

I opened the large box that contained my holiday gift. Inside, I found a brewing kit. “Perfect!”

When I was in my mid-20s, I brewed mead. However, I lost my equipment in the move from my childhood home.

It had been a long time since I brewed anything, so I needed a refresher. So, I purchased a book about mead-brewing.

I eagerly read the book—and that takes some doing since I’m dyslexic. Learning about Vikings and how they brewed mead had my attention.

Today, I am once again excited to try my hand at brewing mead. However, this time I am trying an open-air brewing technique I found in the book. It’s brewing done old school—like our ancestors did long ago. Along this line, Wiccans like brewing mead.

Instead of using commercial yeast, I will be harvesting wild yeast. This is something our ancestors did at the beginning of their brewing exploits.

So, I gathered up all the equipment and ingredients that I needed, including a rod to mix my brew. I would dedicate my mead-brewing efforts to the God and Goddess. I wanted to make the mixing rod a sacred tool. Therefore, I wrote a blessing to imbue my new mixing rod with the powers of the God and Goddess.

Mixing Rod Blessing

Blessed Be this Sacred Rod
May it Bestow with Healing Energies of the Gods
Let my Rod mix my brew
With Health, Wealth, Peace, and Joy anew
All who taste the brew mixed with this Rod
May Find Everlasting Blessedness from the Gods
As I will, So Mote It Be

In the next days, I’ll see how my renewed interest in mead-brewing goes.

Are you considering adding something new to your daily activities?

May your adventures go well.

Blessed Be,
Moonwater
