UPDATE
so i'm heating the mead or i guess its a melomel at this point, the stones were too hard to remove so all liquid was drained and everthing else thrown away. i ended up with one gallon and just a hair over of juice that was 1.094, i'm not sure how thick regular fruit juice is but man this stuff is thick.

i'll update SG once i'm done heating it, about to put my chiller in there to sanitize it

and heres what i ended up with:

starting gravity: 1.110
6 gallons total

the sample tasted very good, nice red color from the cherry plums. i'm pretty excited about this one.

how high is the gravity usually for wines?
