Slow and steady. This is a seven gallon experimental batch of Brochet based on a 1393 recipe. The green light is on a 250 watt fish tank heater keeping the must at a steady 74F. Haven't tasted it yet, but it smells yummy.

That is some beautiful looking mead. Did you do something special to get it so clear?

Love the flip-top bottle. Where'd you get it.

That's my batch of Hefty Braggot, about 10 days old. Doesn't look like much yet.

I put bentonite in it but I did it too early so it started fermenting again. I left it alone for 2 months after that and racked it. I have 3 more that I need to rack this week that are not that clear. The only other difference is in my first one also had the juice from a whole orange in it so I think that help the yeast. Anyway I'm still learning patience

This is the gravity sample of my first mead. It is a light lemonade mead.

My mead bottled and ready to drink with another gallon going. Can't wait for my other mead to be finish.
