Hey folks, just was looking for critiques with my recipes and techniques. I brewed up a 5 gallon batch of blueberry lemon mead
14.5 lbs orange blossom
Topped up to 5 gallons with spring water
Added 42 oz of blueberry purée
2 lbs of frozen blueberries
Juice of one lemon
4 tsp of yeast nutrient
2 tsp of pectic enzyme
Pitched 2 packs of d47.
I plan on racking in a few weeks into 5 or so more lbs of frozen blueberries. I'm just looking for recommendations on things I may be able to do to ensure a delicious mead. Any particular way I should rack the 5 lb of blueberries ( boil, thaw n pitch, etc?), maybe more lemon juice? More nutrient? Sorry for being so noobish but everyone starts somewhere and I don't wanna waste all this money!
Also, I'm aiming for a dry to very lightly sweet mead. Should this do the trick?
Thanks folks! Positive criticism is what I'm aiming for here!!
