Do the ingredients all scale at 1:1, for making a 5g batch?

Yes, except for the yeast. Only add the original amount of yeast.

Mine is sitting around waiting for my cold to go away. I don't feel comfortable bottling with this in me. It was "ready" on Dec, 12th. I assume it is only getting better

you're wasting your time. 6 months from now, your old lady's gonna whack you up side the head and say, "YOU ONLY MADE ONE GALLON??!!".

Ok I made a 1 gallon batch of this, and my starting gravity is 1.1 with the honey. I forgot about the fact that the orange would add to this as well. does anybody know how much a full sized orange would have influenced this gravity?>

I made this mead about two or three years ago, it was my first fermentation ever. Turned out pretty good, except a little more orange-y than I was hoping for. This will require AT LEAST 6mo of aging and after a year is damn good. Yes, I used bread yeast, it turned out fine. It also is a beautiful color and is very clear when ready to bottle.

I made mine in August of last year and the orange pith taste just now starting to mellow out. In another six months it might actually be good.
