Does my Joe look alright for nearly a month? Doesn't appear to be clearing yet, but it smells really nice, can't wait to try it

this looks like an awesome first time mead recipe, I think i mught try two 1 gallon batches this week. one with bread yeast and another with some left over lager yeast, and lager it for the same duration and bottle condition.

This may be me being a little OCD about degassing, but did you degas before bottling your JOAM??

I didn't - left it in primary for about 3 months and it was completely flat by the time I bottled.

Hey Fellas
Just wondering if anyone has worked with Lychee? I have gone to a couple wine tastings and all the white sweet wines try to get this flavor down.

What I am going to try is an Apricot/Lychee version of the ancient mead this is my first butchering of a recipe and I was looking for pointers.

So what I am looking at right now is:
1Gal carboy
3 Lbs Clover honey
5-7 dehydrated Apricots
1/2 Lb Lychee

the choices I have right now are:
what yeast should I use? I always have fleshmans and coopers on hand.
what would balance the sweetness like chai or cinnamon?

Any feedback would be groovy.
Cheers

PS
well done on the ancient mead recipe. That stuff is potent.

Mine just finished up, and I've got to say, it is one of the better things I've ever tasted. I got rid of the pith and cut the honey down to 3 lbs, and it is wonderful. It tastes wonderful and has a great warmth to it.

I've seen a couple people talk about using a milk jug for their primary, does this work? Just cut a hole in the lid, and make a blow off tube?

If so, then I know what I'll be doing tonight!
