Black Raspberry mead

Started a 5 gallon batch of mead last week from a gallon of Missouri Blueberry Honey (thanks Larry). Today I will add 5 pounds (a gallon) of Black Raspberries to it. After they have finished out, will add more. I love this mead!
The honey has all been consumed/dissolved, took a week. Siphoning it onto the berries.

This is what the berries look like when all the goodness is fermented out.
But the mead calls for at least another five pounds (one gallon) of berries.
