MedsenFey--This batch went dry (1.002). It started with a gravity of 1.106. The really sweet stuff I used to top up with only fermented down to 1.040. I had used 20 lbs of honey in that one and no SNA.
I used D47 in both of the batches. The ABV of this most current batch was at ar a little above 15%. The sweeter batch was around 12%.
After adding the fruit, The gravity went up to 1.004. I just racked off of the fruit yesterday and there is some activity going on at this point. I don't know if it has restarted ferment or if it is just degassing. Hold on I will check the gravity... Actually right now it is showing a reading of 1.008! There are some tiny bits of fruit flesh in the sample, but I assume the added sugar from both the fruit and the sweeter mead made most of the difference.
Taste at this point--Way sweeter than before. Tastes very young obviously, but not bad. It seems all went well. Hydrometer shows 1% PABV. The fruit is coming through surprisingly well. If some of this sweetness ferments out I would be happy, I don't necessarily want it as dry as a bone though.
What do you think this will do from here???
