Default WLP004 & Melomel & Cyser

Day 12: gravity at 1.012. Woohoo! Home stretch . It smells great. I didn't taste it, but it doesn't have that offensive harsh ethanol bite to the nose anymore. I'be been slowing on agitating, not being as vigorous as day 1-6.

Any tips on clarity? It's still verrrrry murky (obviously agitation shouldn't help), and I wonder if it will clear on its own, or if I should cold crash...? The yeast cake on the bottom is thicker than my 5gal batches also, should I consider racking into another .8gal carboy?

Cheers!

Patience. It will clear with time. Meads can take a while, so just forget about it for a while.
