Hope to get a hive going this year.

I have been wanting to do the same thing. Joined a few groups and the advice is to begin with 2 hives not 1. probably will cost you a good grand for start up if you don't do it on the cheap, which is frowned on.

I found a lot of beekeeping stuff on Craigslist, most of it barely used. Maybe look there for gently used stuff?

Got a local honey guy but local honey aint cheap. His price is very fair but still a bit pricey for me to be using for mead. I would be looking at at least $15 for a gallon of sweet mead or around $10/gal of dry.

 

I add FermaidK for nutrients and prefer K1V 1116 for yeast. Its just as aggressive as EC 1118 but does better in low nutrient ferments.
