My husband and I also bottled the Ancient Orange Mead which also turned out very good. I love my labels.
Last Sunday we made a Melomel which is Mead made with fruit. We decided on Mango Ginger. I have frozen mangos from my yard. I used approximately 12 lbs of mango and 15 lbs of honey from my hives and fresh ginger. Right now we are having a little bit of difficulty with the fermentation and questioning the original specific gravity. I added a little more honey today. Hopefully it will turn out ok.
When making wine or mead patience is a definitely a virtue, this fermentation process takes time sometimes up to a year.
