I'm planning a raspberry version next week. For a gallon batch how many pounds of berries should I add?

I tried mine last week after fermenting for 7 months. The taste is a little sharp. I'll let it age for another 4-5 months and try it around Christmas.

I've made several gallon batches of JOAM with some fruit or yeast variations. I've found that if I use something like safale 95, it clears and taste better just a bit quicker than with bread yeast....

If you've followed the directions and allowed the mead time ferment out and did not backsweeten, there should be no reason to use k-meta, IMO.

I can relate to that. Did you sneak a taste while bottling?

I know this question wasn't directed to me, but i'd like to chime in and say that when I sampled my JAOM at bottling, I actually thought it was already pretty damn tastey and didn't think it tasted bad or overly "pithy" at all. But that's just my opinion. It's been really difficult to NOT open up 1 of my 4 aging bottles.. I'm trying hard to let it age in the bottle for 4-6 months before I crack one open.
