Ken Schramm is a mead maker, musician, fruit grower, baker, brewer, hunter, angler, fly tyer and lover of all things gustatory. He is the author of The Compleat Meadmaker (Brewers Publications, 2003), and has been involved in beverage hobbies since 1988. He has served on the AHA Board of Advisers, and is one of the founders of the Mazer Cup Mead Competition, North America’s oldest mead-only competition.
Ken lives in Michigan, where the opportunity to grow tart cherries and fly fish for trout is paid for in brutal winters and economic conditions just barely shy of the Great Depression. He will ply you with tasty mead if you take him to the outdoors for adventures involving Salmonids, Cervidae or upland game birds. You really should do that.
