Racked. Got almost exactly 1-1/2 gallons. Photos below. Currently it's at 1.028 (puts it at around 13% ABV, if the measurements can be believed).

The smell is great, but it tastes pretty sour. I'm hoping that's not a bad sign. It's probably not done fermenting. If only this stuff would age faster!

After racking, a nice layer of gook settled to the bottom. This is mostly the leftover apple bits, I think. I'm not sure I'll cook the apples in the honey again, unless I want to make apple candy, and pick the bits out before I add the apple juice. It was fun to try, though.

What was the final abv on this? Would you do the apple bits again? I ask because we have a local honey producer that actually sells caramalized honey, and I really liked the idea of using it for a mead.

Finally bottled.

It's very tasty. Reminds me of baked apple. This will be great at Thanksgiving!
