I can't remember what the gravity was. But I do remember it was 22% after final rack, perhaps not all the yeast had not died.

I've noticed there are a few recipes that say you should put raisins in. Could you use currants or sultanas instead? Is there a reason why? Also could you use dates or prunes, or are these too sweet?

Clear honey V's Set honey

I've made a few meads now, all using clear honey. I was thinking of trying it with set honey. Has anyone else tried using this set honey, if so are the final results different?
