While I agree it's beautiful, how did you make a blueberry mead that isn't blue /purple?

I didnt mash the blueberries, I only frozen them and thaw them right before add them in the carboy.

I probably didnt get many flavors of the berries but the taste test was very good

Brother and I prepared our first batches of mead in October, a traditional (racked once), and a JAOM (never racked):



Both turned out delicious! We bottled around 2 weeks ago.

Enjoying a glass of Joe's Quick Grape Mead, a concord pyment, which was started on 1/6/13. I used Kirkland brand 100% concord and raw wildflower honey. Easy, simple and delicious!

About 7 pounds freshly picked, spines scraped off, chopped (roughly quartered), and frozen.

Thawed, and added to two 1-gallon paint strainer bags (tied off with dental floss) into the primary bucket near the end of primary fermentation. Let it sit for a month, then removed.

It's a four gallon batch, so I racked to a 3-gallon carboy and 1-gallon jug.

They are from a portuguese rosé wine faisão. Me and my father in law drank some bottles last summer after I started my meads. They are 750ml bottles
