Day 69, racked onto Campden tablet dissolved in about a cup of boiled water. Gravity has flatlined at 1.006. The warm sample from the bucket dregs was pretty good - alcohol hotness is much diminished and the honey flavor and sweetness is very noticeable. Chilled this would be pretty darned good.

It's pretty clear, but I'll let it go for a while in the gallon carboy before I bottle. I think it has a bit more clearing to do yet.

Day 74 - half a campden tablet and sorbate dissolved in 1/4 cup of warmed mead, bottled. My first mead and first wine bottle corking session. Yield was 4 full bottles for aging, one half bottle and an ounce or two in a glass from the bottling bucket in the fridge.

Thanks to all!
