on the left we have my black and blueberry aging in a 1 gal with some oak chips. this is going to be a dry mead. after tasting it during racking, it almost reminded me of a cabernet. next to it, i put some more black and blueberries in the remaining gallons of that batch and will be making this one slightly sweeter and hopefully some sparkling. far right is some jaom. the bottle is what i'll be putting the black and blueberry into and that's just a rough draft of the labels i'm having printed for it. i'm thinking i'll seal it with some red wax. might brown wax the oaked batch. these are my first two meads. have a pumpkin cyser in the bucket that i started yesterday.

oh, as an update, the black and blueberry have become EXTREMELY dark. almost a blood red. looks great!

Thanks! i'm glad you like it. I'll post pictures after its bottled. The final print is going to be done professionally so expect it to look a lot better. I figure that even if the mead turns out bad, at least the good looks might be enough to trick people. haha

Here is a pic of the T'ej I started on 11/10/10, so aged almost 1.5 yrs. T'ej is an Ethiopian mead flavored with Gesho (used similar to hops). So I guess you could consider this mead, Braggot, or maybe Metheglin (depends on what you consider the Gesho is). I only have 2 bottles left so I need to make this last.

Wow Ryan that look beautiful!! It's crystal clear. Well here is a small trial batch that I have going right now. I started this about 24 hours ago.
