I am looking to make a 2 gallon batch of JAOM for my wife, but she is not a citrus fan. I was going to put together a DABM (David's Ancient Blackberry Melomel).
The recipe will be pretty much the same as above, but adjusted the following way:
2 packets Fleischman's yeast
1 cinnamon stick
1.5 lb blackberries
7 lb starthistle honey
Is there enough blackberry in this recipe? I want it to come through, but not overpower the starthistle honey which is a fairly delicate honey that goes really well with blackberries (one of my favorite desserts, by the way).
