Opened my last bottle of Cherry Berry Mead with some friends (so I thought I would add some pictures)...it was amazing! Can't wait for my next batch to be ready!

I have a question for Slim or any others who have already bottled their mead already. I am in no hurry to bottle but I had a question about clarity. I have seen the picture of the bottled mead but was wondering how clear the mead will get in the carboy. This is where I am now as far as clarity. I know it is probably not the best picture but it was they best I was able to take. I just racked it a second time to take it off about 1/2 to 3/4 of an inch of lees. Also I am wondering about any chemicals that anyone added such as stabilising agents and if any added them. I took another reading after racking and I am at 1.016 and have been there for over 4 weeks.

Hello here is my attempt at this beautiful sounding recipe. I have never made mead before. I had some at a brewery last night and decided to make some today. I used all the ingredients listed in the recipe, combined in a brew pot and heated until hot (175°F). I allowed the mix to cool to 80°F and added 5 tsb of yeast nutrient and LALVIN 71B-1122 WINE YEAST. My OG is spot on at 1.13. Only thing I did different was that I did not puree the strawberries. I mashed some and left a lot in their current frozen form. Here are some pics. Will keep you posted.
