It's a blueberry mead.
In the bottles it doesn't look as clear as in the glass. It came out at 12.3% abv

Yeah, I mean I kind of made it up, but it's in correction to a previous batch I made, trying to improve, I'll post when I get a chance, not at home

Looks beautiful! I love blueberry, I've been wanting to try out a blueberry anise mead but havnt tried it out yet, I do have a pine blueberry mead but the blueberry is very subtle... How did you get it so dark?

Honestly, I don't have a clue.

It my 3rd attempt at mead making. My 1st was just terrible, had a nasty band-aid taste.

I kind of followed a recipe I found. They had me get water boiling and steep 5lbs of frozen blueberries for 30 minutes. I didn't use frozen.
Once I got all the ingredients into the fermenter I added the berries I had just steeped and let it sit for a month.
When I racked it off I did add 5lbs of frozen blueberries. I let that sit for a month or so and then racked again.

I started it on 7/13.

Here is a link to the recipe.

I used D-47

Here are a couple of meads I started around Halloween (although not Halloween inspired). Nuted them today and I decided to take a picture for you guys. Descriptions for the more interested below.

Happy Holidays!



Starting from the left (percentages are current, not target):

Blueberry Pancake. 14.7% and still going. EC-1118. 12 lbs. Snowberry Honey. 3 lbs. Clover. I'm intending this to be a sack mead, adding a second addition of 2 lbs of blueberries once the yeast reach their peak (so they peter out with the sugars from the berries, while the alcohol essentially extracts the remaining blueberry essence from the blueberry puree) then backsweetening with Grade B maple syrup to 1.03. There is already 20 oz. of Anderson's Grade B maple syrup fermenting away inside. Delicious.

Raspberry Melomade. EC-1118. 13.3%. 8 lbs. Clover Honey. 3 cans Minute Maid lemonade concentrate, 16 oz. of raspberries in secondary. Fermentation has been slow due to the acidity of the lemonade, but she's still going. I will add 16 more oz of raspberries at the end of fermentation in the same fashion as the blueberry above, getting more of an extract than any further fermentation.

Mapfelwien. 71B-1122. 10.7%. 64 oz. Simply Apple Juice. 1.8 lbs. Snowberry Honey. 12 oz. Anderson's Grade B Maple Syrup. Experimental batch. For me, the jury is still out on my care for cysers, although I really would like to enjoy them. I'll probably bottle 2 bottles from the batch, then use the rest to top off the blueberry pancake before it's bottling to bring a hint of apple to the party.
