OK so the plan changed slightly, since cherries still arent in season and since walmart had 1lb of fresh strawberries for $1.50, I bought 6 pounds of strawberries for the mead that I was planning on using with cherries.

I was planning on making a starwberry mead/melomel. Just a 1 Gal. batch to try. Let me know how that goes. I can get strawberries for the same price at my Walmart. I guess I only 1 lb. though.

Updates on my projects, as notes the strawberry is well on its way to be a decent dessert mead. the goldenrod is kinda tart and dry, the peach is in need of definate help and will probably be racked onto a few pounds of canned peaches (yeah i need some suggestions for this one), the grapefruit definately has a nose and taste of grapefruits, think grapefruit juice minus some tartness in my opinion very enjoyable in moderation, and the spice mead has a nose and body on cinnamon, i thought of pumpkin pie when I tasted it, also due to the allspice which contributed alot of nutmeg to me.

Now after reading or skipping the reading the pictures:

I bet those are going to be really fine after they've aged. Kudos! How long are you going to let them sit before tremptation gets the better of you?
