Yes, this book claims a shockingly long aging time for Heather Meads. Has
any body done a Heather Mead who can verify this?

I read in (this is from distant memory, so
author/title info may be off/misspelled) Acton/Duncans
"Making Mead" that heather mead takes upwards of 20
years to age properly. Has anyone else heard this?
Twenty years seems like an inordinate amount of time
to me.
