It's done very well. Fruity but not bitter, the hotness has really disappeared. I only have four bottles left, I'd say that's a good sign. Go for it!

I'll have to give this a try. Do you remember, by chance, how much ingredients cost you overall?

Have made 3 batches of mead using Costco clover honey. All three were very good. berrys from the same seem to be an ok price as well. Cherry's are in season now and ready to go form my 4th batch using them. Anyone have an idea on how many lb's needed for a strong cherry taste??
Thanks

Check out Ken Schramm's book The Compleat Meadmaker. It has a table in it, and although I don't have it in front of me now, I believe it should say how much fruit to use depending on how strong of a flavor you want.

I've made a few meads with Costco honey that turned out well. Personally, I have nothing against the costco special, however I primarily use it when adding fruit or spices to my mead. I don't think I'd use it for a traditional mead, but I've never actually tried a traditional with it either(who knows, it could be fantastic).

So far my attempts with Costco honey have been limited to a metheglin, a Cherry mead, and a few batches of JAOM, all turned out very good.
