This is quite a pathetic post here, but...After many attempts, I have this mead stuck at 1.030. I'm not asking for assistance on that, I've been down that road. I'm down to making another 5 gallon batch and mixing the two. The second batch will ideally be quite a bit lower in gravity.
Now for the pathetic part. Anyone willing to let me try a finished version of this? I would really feel dumb having 10 gallons of something I don't like. And with the costs associated with the honey and everything, it would be a monumental waste.
