nice. this sounds great and i'm sure it's one that will age to be even better (thinking 3+ years). mead is one of the wines on my list of, "need to make" wines. the vintner's harvest brand seems pretty good from what i've used (cranberry, blackberry, elderberry, raspberry, merlot and black currant-IIRC).
from the mead i've had, it seems to be a good wine to mix with other varieties, too.
Have a citrus based melomel started at 1094, finished at 1000. October 2008 to April 2010.
Nothing wrong, no off tastes but not what I wanted.
Tossed some frozen blueberries at it with a generic blueberry base, started at 1022, now down to 1002.
Visually great, preliminary taste very pleasing.
I will be getting 1 gallon of blueberry honey this weekend and most likely will also get blueberries. Can you post the recipe that you used when you used the fruit. Just to make clear the blueberry honey, it was honey made from the blueberry pollination from the blueberry bushes. I told someone the other day that we were going to have blueberry honey and they though it was made with blueberries and not from blueberry bushes. So that is why I wanted to clear that up before someone asked, lol.
