Ok finally bottled the Blueberry lemon mead.  Wow is this one going to taste good.  The Lemon wasn't much there but it did give the blueberry a "Bright" taste and I think brings out the blueberry more.

I ended up with 2 cases and 14 bottles.  My bigest batch so far.  So wow.  Didn't expect that.  It turned out a nice purple color that is deep, deep purple.  So, yeah, it is going to be a winner.  I think that I am getting better.

Over the weekend I opened up a bottle from another mead maker and it was very wine like, lots of tannins and good but rather disapointing as far as a mead is conserned.  I like mine better.  My friends also said that mine was better by far. 

Cleaned my gear and I am all ready for making 2 primaries with the Orange Blossum honey: One will be a strawberry, the other a Mango.  Yes, Mango mead.  Sounds lovely to me.   I just didn't have the energy after cleaning the house and bottling the blueberry lemon to make the batches.  Sigh, I am afraid that it will need to wait about 2 weeks.

Things that didn't get done:
two primaries
Removing the oak on the rockbitters
Racking the Rockbitters
Racking off the pumpkin hazelnut.
Still not time to sparkloid the chocolates.

That is all for now.

I am amused by this as I used the last of my freezer blueberries to make a lemon blueberry cake. I had similar results.

Interesting. Thanks for letting me know. I wondered if it was a universal taste situation. Good to know. It should be interesting to see how this one ages out. Should be ready earliest in July. I plan on bringing some to the next Mile Hi Con in October.
