After 1 month in primary bucket, I racked onto 1 pound of dried bing cherries. No sulfites, however the ingredient list mentions sunflow seed oil. I rinsed the cherries off with tap-hot water to remove as much oil as possible. I also cut the cherries in half.

Racked into a 6.5 gal carboy. I had to top off with 1.75 gal of apple juice.

Begining gravity 1.110, gravity at transfer 1.002. Tasted dry and very strong alcohol taste.

Question is, how long should I leave on the cherries in secondary?

Leave them in until your next rack. 1-2 months or more is fine. This mead will be dry unless you stabilize and back sweeten to your taste. It will also be hot for several months.

Thank you for recipe. Started a batch last night. Im relatively newbie, have done a few quick meads and ciders with success. I had a question about oxygenating, what do you do? Thanks for insights.

This was sitting in the back of my closet for 3 years. Best mead I've ever made. Excellent. It was pretty awful after 1 year in tertiary. Glad I decided to keep it. Great recipe!!

I think this was the first mead I tried a few years ago at my friends place in Austin. Had some over the weekend at 4 years old and now know what recipe it was. This stuff is fantastic. I will get started on this one as soon as I clear out some space.

Also, my friend in Austin opened Meridian Hive meadery and their meads are located around the area. Try some if you can.
