Default Who is still bulk aging their Leapyear Mead

Sorry if this upsets someone, but I havent been on for quite a while and the search engine didnt help me narrow it down,

So I still have mine in the 5gallon carboy and thinking of racking it one more time.

Should I have bottled it already or should I bottle it now?

Up to you really. I bottled mine ages ago but I only did 1 gal and it cleared really quickly.

I'm sure there's others here yet to bottle...

I've racked 4 times. Is a very clear, golden colour. Some lees have dropped yet - may or may not rack again. Presently not in a hurry; four years, right?

Mines still in secondary too. I have the bottles all ready, just haven't done anything with it yet.
