I want to start pymenteering. Any pymenteers here that would like to share their experience?

We usually simply forage a few different types of wild grapes, freeze, thaw, mash up and place in the mead must in mesh bags during fermentation.

Ever tried grape juice instead of water, and combined that with some kind of fruit? If so, which fruit would be compatible? (everybody: "GRAPES"!)

We pretty much make our mead based on the fruit we grow or forage being available so no, but I imagine grape juice is what most do.
If I were going that route I would go with wine grapes from a winemaker supplier.
