Here's my attempt. I doubled the recipe, except the yeast, and put it in a 5 gallon carboy.

I've never tasted mead, much less made any. This should be an experience.

Just bottled my 3 gallon batch. Filled 8 wine bottles and 12 beer bottles. Popped one open to test and its quite potent, with a pithy orange peel taste. I am looking forward to letting it age and mellow.

I have a couple bottles that are 7 months old and it gets better and better every month. I also entered a bottle in a competition so we will see how it does.

This is what it looks like over night. I am assuming all that that sediment on the bottom is from the oranges & cinnamon? But yeah nothing from the airlock besides two bubbles every 10 mins.

Put this together today...followed the recipe exactly...had activity within an hour of pitching the yeast. Can't wait to try this...what does it need a couple of months?

My attempt at JOAM. The 1 Gal glass jug on the right was started 6/11, crystal clear but so sweet it's almost not drinakble. Don't know if I should add some water or save it and use it to blend with the other 2 batches.

Made 30 minutes ago:
Center batch is a 1.5 gal blueberry, raisins, cinnamon and vanilla Ancient Mead using S-05.

Left side batch is also 1.5 gal pretty close to original recipe but w/o cloves, added AllSpice. Also used S-05.

Bottom pic just to show the clarity... picture doesn't do it justice
