I've used 10# of blueberries in a 5 gallon batch with good results. They were frozen for months, thawed completely, squished in the Foodsaver bag and added to the secondary fermenter for a month or so.

I've also used black raspberries in a stout, never yet in a mead. 9# were added to the wort at flameout and steeped for 30 minutes. I'm going to have to make a second 5 gallons and blend the two, because 9# was waaaayy too much.

I'd start with 1# of raspberries in one gallon of mead. It's easy to add more later, but quite difficult to take it back once it's in there.


A fool and his money are soon partying.

ok the fermt. slowed down. way down and I added fruit and racked on top and it has been almost a week! good color! My question is.. all of the fruit in on top.. should I stir or tip over the jub to mix the fruit? also being new at mead should I rack off the Fruit in about a week?

primary = Nomadic Caribou Stout, 10 gallons Extra Pale Ale

1 gal. Primary = 2 gallons of Blueberry wine with a hint of honey

kegged = Three Hearted IPA
