How many pounds of blackberries is recommended to use with about 8 pounds of honey? And how much water would you use?

I used twice as many blackberries as honey in my last batch. I fermented the berries, pulled the bag, then mixed in the honey. How much water will depend on how juicy the berries are and whether you want a sweet product or a dry one. I'd aim for 2-3 gallons after removing the berries.

Wow, that seems like a lot of Blackberries! How sweet was the mead?
I was told that just 1 pound will be enough... and I don't like too sweet of a mead,
more toward the dry side. Will One or two pounds be enough?
