    Default Blackberry melomel woohoo

    So I took 2.5 gallons of blackberries and crushed them up and tossed in 1 gallon of honey and filled it the rest of the way to the 5.5 gallon mark with Spring water. I threw in a little D47 (1 packet) and its currently chugging away. I can hardly wait till primary is done so I can sample just a little bit of it!

    They are among my favorites as well. Thats the reason I used so many blackberries in it. Its still chugging along nicely. I can almost taste it now!

    So I checked on my Melomel this mast weekend. It already rocked down to a dry melomel. I can't believe it fermented so fast, but good for me. Tonight I am going to finish pressing the berries on my press and add another 1/2 gallon of honey as obviously its not DONE!

    I started a 1 gallon batch of this Sunday night, and it took off like a rocket with D47, next morning it had spewed all over the table I had it sitting on lol!

    I figured I would add honey till I make the yeast give up!
