Yeah, that sounds like a good idea! However I want to keep the strawberries as the main flavor, so maybe just a bit of rhubarb. So, I think I finally have a good workable recipie!
14 lbs. Clover honey
½ cup of raisins
12 lbs of frozen strawberries
3 lb of rhubarb
1 Vanilla Bean
a pinch of nutmeg
1 pack of sweet mead yeast or ale yeast
Water filled to 5 gallon line
Thank you to everyone for your input!
Now I just need to figure out the best yeast to use. Will Nottingham yeast go beyond 11% ABV?
