Clearing mead
 
1 Attachment(s)

I have had my mead sitting for a little over 2 months. As seen below.

I will be away for the next 3 months.....maybe 4. (Military) Then I planned on bottling the mead. I would like the mead to be pretty clear by then. I will be stationed in a new place in 4 months so I will be limited on time to bottle this mead before I move. But I would like it clear.

Should I leave it alone and bottle it in 4 months hoping for the best?

Should I add some sparkolloid and try to have it clear for the next 4 months? Then bottle on my week home.

Will it still have a chance to clear in the bottle?

Cheers

It's a honey wine with vanilla, cinnamon, and some black tea added. I started it ferment 2 weeks before I left for some training. It wasn't finished fermenting so I had to leave it for another 2 months with all the spices in it. I just rack it into another carboy yesterday minus all the spices. Hopefully it will clear a good amount in the next 4 months.

No idea where my next duty station will be. I won't know for another month.

Here's the taster I took. It tasted ok. 4 months will do it some good.
