I like the way you think. You, sir, get a "like".. lol
Mine basically started as a 1 gallon test batch to see how it turns out. Here's what mine looks like after the second racking (and in poor lighting). 5 days later it clarified pretty much crystal clear on it's own:
Only things I did different was used 3.5 lbs. Great Lakes Clover honey, Red Star Premier Cuvee yeast and did not add any cinnamon sticks.
I have a feeling that when it's ready to drink, I won't want to share any of it...
