Bump. Mine just cleared and I'm ready to bottle. Carbonate or not? Serving temperature?

So the JOAM mead recipe only needs to ferment for 2 months?? I thought meads had to ferment for years??

I would probably say to leave it a MINIMUM of two months... Mine set for a year and a half and was apparently phenomenal... It took a B.O.S. just last week... Sadly they were the last two bottles I had left...

Guess what I am making again this weekend?

I am looking to make a 2 gallon batch of JAOM for my wife, but she is not a citrus fan. I was going to put together a DABM (David's Ancient Blackberry Melomel).

The recipe will be pretty much the same as above, but adjusted the following way:

2 packets Fleischman's yeast
40 raisins
1 cinnamon stick
1.5 lb blackberries
7 lb starthistle honey

Is there enough blackberry in this recipe? I want it to come through, but not overpower the starthistle honey which is a fairly delicate honey that goes really well with blackberries (one of my favorite desserts, by the way).
