Aaaaah', refreshing! A nice pint oh' mead. Wait a second, that isn't mead, it's just plain water, boo-hoo. Oats, barley and rye. Hops perhaps? How about a little honey? An apiary privides a sanctuary for bees. Bees produce honey. What do we make with honey? MEAD! That's right, good ole' fashioned beer! The beekeeper would: 1. Build an apiary (the wooden structure which attracts bees, protects them and provides a home for the honey comb they make). 2. Collect honey comb and extract the honey/royal jelly/beeswax. 3. With a little bit of patience, and using a table such as the one we use with dyes, certain types of meads/beer are produced in casks/barrels. 4a. Upon drinking mead, the body is rejuvenated (stamina replenished instantly; ~or~ 4b. Upon drinking mead, the body does away with fatigue better, therefore tasks such as digging allow for more actions without resting. 5. Honey can be made into sandwiches for quick and instant stamina boosts. 6. Honey is a very powerful salve and can be applied over wounds for quicker heal recovery. 7. Beeswax can be made into longer lasting candles or ultra lantern fuel. 8. Beeswax can be used along with various dyes/berries to produce paintings/art (a whole other topic and suggestion). 9. Beeswax can be used with fishing line/sewing thread to strengthen and preserve it. 10. Beeswax can be used in bowmaking. 11. Beeswax can be used for wax molds to build items (poured metals). 12. Pollen can be collected and dispersed on crops for better yield. An apiary/bee box could also provide a boost in crop yeild to surrounding crops, say, 1x more crop per harvest in a 10x10 tile area. Other uses include (exerpted and linked to Wikipedia: beeswax, propolis, pollen, and royal jelly and to pollinate crops. Please involve yourself in the 'discussion' and contribute to this idea and celebrate the making of mead! Thank you, R'
