How awesome is that? Opened it up for a gravity reading this morning and the second the smell hit me I coughed right into it. Hopefully enough alcohol in there already to kill any bacteria I might have coughed into it...
And yeah... its tastes like gasoline. This one is a LONG way from being drinkable.

You would think so but you still need to be careful. More so than a strait mead. I handled my bragott just like my meads rather than how I do wines and after alegume into bulk aging and a few taste tests I noticed bacterial infection. Totally soured the whole thing. It was a sad day for bragotts world wide.
So if you are done with fermentation and just bulk aging I would say hit it with a dose of Camden tablets. But that's just me from my parinoid state after my bragott loss.
A painting says a thousand words. But a painting while on good mead just looks funny!
