This was made with 12# local NW Idaho honey and 1#strawberries 1/2# each blueberries/raspberries. I think I pooched it with this little bit though cause I got impatient with the extra 1Gal that wouldn't fit in my carboy and I ran it through a Pur filter.... >_>
This is my first time making mead and it's REALLY dry and super strong with a high acid flavor like super tart strawberries. I want to back sweeten it because it's supposed to be for a friends 21st bday. But I'm scared to.

Just bottled my Pumpkin Cyser and I'm drinking what wouldn't fit evenly into bottles. I have to say I am impressed as It's already easy to drink. I started at a O.G. of 1.155 and fermented down to 1.033 so it's really sweet, like a desert wine which is fine because it has pumpkin pie spices in it. I'm going to definitely make another batch of this but make it just a little less sweet but this is still a fabulous outcome for my third try at mead and it's not even aged yet.

Update. I added some vanilla bean and a couple cinnamon sticks to the carboy, I'm going to go and get some cloves to put in there too :3 I want that nice and spicy kick to it. What was in the bottle was the excess. After I re-racked the stuff in my carboy I had plenty of room for the excess I'd had before because I discarded all of the sediment. There's like little to NO headroom so I'm not worried about oxidization. When I had spiced the excess it tasted like a sugar cookie! TOTALLY YUMMY! I might have to pour our some though cause I want to add some more strawberries, raspberries and blueberries to it. Cordial ftw YUM!

Oh crap forgot to post some better pics of my previous mead, but here is a JAOM I had to do (because IM a cult-follower zombie?) It is something you just have to do when making meads it seems. Welp, here it is in its premature age,cant wait to see what happens. Ahh , life is a journey.

Bottled my second mead, elsewhere I had listed it as my first but I mentally blocked out my Cranberry mead from last year that lost all color and was nearly clear (see post #779 in this thread from April 2013).
Anyways, a nice cherry mead that finished just under 1.000 and to me just perfect. I feared it finishing too high and tasting like cherry cough syrup, but my fears were unfounded as this finished just right. This was just one gallon but I will make up a 5 gallon batch when temps cool down again.

He should put it in the Recipe forum so it's easy to find in the future.
