Can you post the link to the JOAM/blueberry recipe?
Also, a few other questions. I'm totally new at this. The JOAM recipe does not discuss boiling the honey/water mix. Is this not part of it?
I am using wild Alaskan blueberries, that are very tart. What sorts of berries are others using?
In making blueberry cordial by adding Everclear to wild berry juice, the wild berries have a tendency to gel. I have been told that this is the reaction between the pectin in the berries and the alcohol, and some have said that it can be reduced by freezinbg the berries first. Has this ever been an issue in making a mead?
