Had some mead finish at 1040 about 16.5% which I would describe as desert wine. It is really lovely though especially after 18 months in the bottle. I did. blackberry melomel with 500g of boiled and sieved berries and 500g at end of fermentation. Came out really good. I don't stop the fermentation as found it a pita. I backsweeten at the end if it needs it. Think I will try the blueberry. Looks awesome. Cheers

Bottled. Nice and clear, gravity and time only. Smells lovely, sweet from the blueberries. The taste is a little hot, it's more a small glass spirit substitute than a wine even at the alcohol level. I'm going to let it rest in the bottle for a while to see if it mellows out and will be open to backsweetening at a later date.
