I'm wanting to make mead for the first time using honey from my hives. I also have frozen blackberries from my property and I'm considering also making a blackberry mead. Any guidance appreciated.......amount of blackberries to use, suggestions for appropriate yeast, etc. I'm not too concerned about the alcohol content but would like something maybe semi-sweet or maybe a bit sweeter and a little carbonation wouldn't be bad.
I may make a must then divide it into different carboys and make a traditional mead from one and blackberry mead from the other.
