;) Yeah, I was going to suggest that maybe you would hit that by yourself, but I have no idea of the output of a commercial meadery.

You are right some of us were holding back….
5 gallons dark wildflower/eastern buckwheat back sweetened with the dark wildflower and maple syrup (that I got from my trees this year) and aged on medium toast Hungarian oak for 3 1/2 months
4 gallons sweet donut peach mead
5 gallons cyser
1 gallon what I call frankenblueberry
(1/2 gallon mead blended with 1/2 gallon cider aged on 4.25lbs blueberries
336.7 + 15= 351.7

That BlackBerry/ Cherry sounds delicious. A few of questions, if I may, please.
1. How many times have you made this?
2. What was your OG & FG, please?
3. Would you mind sharing your recipe & process, please?
Thanks, in advance, if you do. 👍😁

My blackberry recipe is still getting a minor tweek here or there just to see if I can refine it. Pulled the fruit bag and topped up with a gallon of water and 3# 1.2 oz honey.

374.7 + 1.3 = 376 gallons

1.) I've made blackberry quite a bit, did a tart cherry experiment, decided it was good enough to try a 5 gallon. First time for this blackberry/cherry recipe.
2.) O.G. 1.128, approximately .5 -.6 lbs sugars in berries not in s.g.
3.) I plan to post my blackberry recipe as well as a couple variations. If you want to try it out I can post what I've made so far, blackberry and cherry variants. Planning a spiced one next.

Cool, thank you. No hurry. I can wait till you're ready to post. I need to bottle some to free up a few fermentors anyway 😋🤣

Started mead making late this year, end of June. Currently bulk aging two gallons of blackberry blossom mead, used 4184. Once these get bottled, likely middle of December, I'll be rolling into another two gallons of a meadowfoam mead made with 1388

376+2=378
