Ok here is an update on the ginger mead! When I attempted to back sweeten last when I racked in may I may have added the honey too soon after introducing the sorbate and Camden. Fermentation picked back up. All I could do was let it slowly ferment until done and clear again. I did not get a chance to enter anything in my state fair this year because I had some vacation with my wife about the time I should have been entering bottles and other things just came up. Crazy storms taking my 2 car carport and wrapping it in my 80 year old pecan tree. So my mind was off the brew for a while. So the mead is crystal clear again and I racked into some sorbate and Camden today. I will let a good 12 hours pass before back sweetening. I siphoned off one glass since I need to make head room for honey any way and have it in the freezer chilling at the moment.

I will taste it a bit later and report back. We get to see how a 13+ month dry ginger mead tastes.
