So who else brewed a mead on National Mead Day? I did a blueberry melomel. 15lbs local wildflower honey, about 7lbs wild blueberries. Can’t wait to drink it.

I did three meads this weekend. Sack Cyser at about 35 Brix, 3 gallon batch of peach mead, 30 Brix, 7.5lbs of peaches (with a touch of apricot that I had in the freezer as well), and 4.5 gallon batch of berry mead, 30 Brix, 5.5lbs of blueberries, 3.5lbs of black berries & a bit over a pound of raspberries. Freezer cleaners for sure! Not sure on the exact weights of honey in each of those as as I target gravity.
