Sterilizing mead bc of mold on top
 
3 Attachment(s)

Batch of chocolate mead cocoa and nibs ( nibs in the secondary) has mold on top in the secondary. There is liquid in the lock and it smells good, made back in sept is in a cool cupboard


Can we save this, it was a lot of honey

In the cupboard there is sodium metabisulphite, potassium metabisulphite and potassium sorbate.... All in powder form....no idea how much of any of these to use.... Or which ones.

The mead was one big batch , but will be split into small gallon carboys to make it easier to manage

What should we do now
it is one big batch

shinning a flash light thru it there is still a lot of bubbles coming up the sides... is it possible its not mold just some scum.... what do you guys think



Thanks!
