Short Mead is a food source added by the Forestry mod. It's not considered very good, due to the Nausea effect it adds. It is created with the Fermenter.
Short Mead is crafted in a Fermenter, with Honeydew and Liquid Honey.
Despite it's relatively high creation cost, with the Fermenter requiring energy and reagents, Short Mead only heals for half a food pop, and provides no buffs. As a result, Short Mead is seldom used as a reliable food source.
Short Mead is capable of being placed in Cans, however it can only be consumed from Glass Bottles.
