Cherry mead

The last of the honey (12-15 pounds) and the cherries (20 pounds) are mixed together with two packets of 71B-1122. Tasty results are expected! On day 2 the gravity is 1.138! Fermenting away nicely, by no means total volume. When the cherry flavor peaks, I'll rack to secondary and most likely will have to add a gallon of water!
