17 bottles of Banana - Lavender Honey Melomel.

The lavender flavor dominated for almost its entire life (except the early stages of fermentation). But the banana is finally starting to emerge.

I did an apricot melomel. Just finishing backsweetning on apricots. The colour & clarity are amazing. Going to get it off the fruit today or tomorrow then let it clear a month or two before bottling.I have been saying this a lot lately, but I can't wait to try this one.

A simple mead with honey, water yeast nutrients, acid and tannin. Pardon the condensation on the bottles I bottled the mead (was trying an experiment with clearing).

Having a sampler 3 oz from a New Glarus glass from the brewery- taster of an already opend viking blod. I dont think I can still handle its sweetness but its other wise good.Pretty shure it would be sweeter than doing shots of maple syrup and I think Ive done that before. Does have a nice buttery/appley cinnamonness about it. Im just not use to this high abv/sweetness I guess. Smells and tastes nice though. A lame interpretation of this may be apple pie on steriods. Im also interpereting this differntly today than when I first opened this.

That looks awesome! How many pounds of fruit did you use? Dried or fresh?

Hey all! My 2nd go at a Mead myself. My first is a 5 gallon in a secondary I started back in August. I started a JOAM shortly after for something that would be quicker and ready by mid October. A plan that has worked well. Only difference I made was I used EC-1118 as that is what I had on hand.

Bottled it tonight and it came out very nice.

Have definitely learned a lot from this forum and can't wait to post more in the future!
