    Hahaha... great input guys! Saved me from probably a mistake. Maybe I should get a small jar
    and add just a couple oz. per gallon with other honeys? Luckily I've found a few places locally
    to get a go...

    I think I may get a 3lb jar and make a 1 gallon batch. If it tastes a little off early on, I'll
    just stick it in the back of the closet for a year or two. ;)

    I could comment that if you used 9lb of honey and 3 gallons of water, you made it a little on
    the weak side. 3lb of honey per gallon means total volume, not 3lb of honey PLUS 1 gallon of
    water. You ma...

    I wondered these things, too. And since I had to buy a six pack of those little boxes of
    raisins, I'm wondering if I should use some of those for nutrients. My first two batches are
    going, one is a JA...

    I started my second 1 gal batch of mead a couple weeks ago using some canned blackberries (no
    preservatives, just blackberries in sugarwater) and 3lb of Walker's Honey from Texas. It has a
    nice chocol...

    I'm a bit new myself, and am interested in the responses. I'd figure if it's all natural, I'd
    give it a shot. I'm wondering about how much per gallon you'd want to use, since it may end up
    sweetening ...

    Sorry for continuing off topic... I've been in Austin for about 20 years... allergies didn't
    start hitting me much until maybe 5 or 6 years ago. All of it bugs me, but ragweed and cedar
    are usually th...

    I have allergies myself... I think I'm allergic to just about EVERYTHING that grows outside in
    Central Texas. Well, one remedy that gets mentioned often is to consume honey made locally.
    Well, I'm goi...

    What Tweake said. I have allergies - I'm allergic to just about EVERYTHING that grows outdoors
    around here - so I'm going to try to make my mead using local honey, preferably raw. Maybe if I
    drink eno...
