Finaly got my mead photos from my wife. This mead is a 10+ month old blueberry melomel.

The color is gorgeous! Makes me thirsty just looking at it.

Here is my second batch of Bochet. I just racked it from the fermenter at 11.5% ABV and 12.5 g/L RS.

I have been really lazy about racking and bottling lately. Most of these have been untouched for 6 months.

Have 2 Joe's grape pyments made in September already backsweetened, one JAOM already racked, JAOM with raspberry, blackberry JAOM -orange, and some strawberry nead that used the juice left over after a sampden soak with D47.

Need to rack 3 of these and bottle the other 3.



I also have 5 gallons of D47 strawberry mead I need to back sweeten and bulk age. About to make some blueberry mead also.

Oops...



It's a birch sap mead, OG 1.045. I intend to make it a sparkling low ABV mead. Really starting to like those...

Where did you get your birch sap!? I've been looking for a decent amount for a long while now. Ive even debated just going out and tapping trees next year. But I dont own any trees. I'll post some mead pics later to make up for this post.

Plenty of birch here in Sweden (I can see three very tall ones from my window where I sit), my old man tapped them so I don't really know where though..

Left to right, blood orange passion fruit, concord pyment and prickly pear lime. The prickly pear looks murky, but all the other bottles(green glass, unfortunately) are crystal clear, bright gorgeous pink. All off these already taste fantastic, the concord is 18%, the other two are 14%. These were bottled today, all 3-6 months old. Can't wait for a year to go by!!
