I just made a 1 gallon experiment similar to one previously posted.
-1.5 lbs orange blossom honey
-1oz citra hops
-2 lemons (juice)
-1 tsp energizer/nutrient
-safale s-04 yeast

How long should I let it age before bottling, and is 1oz corn sugar enough to carbonate?

Thanks,
wickerman

I told my self not to bottle earlier than 5 months for the 5 gallon batch. So, mine is still aging, as I want the hops to mellow out a bit. It has almost been 4 months, but it cleared and was finished within 3 weeks. But I am new to mead so the clarity might not be enough for some people.
