anyone try using Brettanomyces strains or Pediococcus in mead? I was just outside contemplating on splitting my 15 pounds honey into a few different batches and what to do with each. this crossed my mind. any thoughts from the old mead hands?

I only play with mead a bit right now, but I think it would be interesting... if you could keep the result from being too dry. I think the combo of dry AND sour might be a bit too much...

If you lke the beers made with brett or ped you would probably like the mead also. Perhaps some raspberries would be called for.
