<<<In comparison, it's interesting to see how Charlie Papazian's advice on
meadmaking changed with time.  At first he recommended regular use of acids
but later changed this, saying acid should only be added to taste, if at
all.  Charlie also gave recognition to the English preference for light
honeys but argued against it, saying that meadmakers have always used the
honeys that were available to them, including the darker honeys.>>>

I've had my copy of Papazian's Joy for many a year.  Not only does it have
only one recipe but he suggested using hops as well.  (As optional,
though...if I recall properly.)  A recent copy I acquired for a friend who
purchased a low-end brew kit with a cheesy book had a couple recipes,
discussed the role of fruit and never mentioned hops.
