Today I have re-attempted the "wolf-moon" Mead(blackberry Melomel with spices).The first two photos are of the first attempt earlier this year. I'm not making those mistakes again. The second two are from today. Wish me luck.
Honey makes everything better... even bacon.
Looks good! I also do my primary fermentation in a bucket for ease of use / clean up. Others on the site add fruit in a secondary carboy to give a fruitier flavor. It would be interesting to do a comparison using the same recipe to see what the difference really is.
