It looks like red wine. It is clear. The EC-1118 makes a very compact lees, and as Joe Mattioli states, the welch's is already clarified. I've made it before, and it's the only mead recipe I'm making twice. It is exactly as advertised, unlike Joe's Ancient Orange.

+1 to Fletch. Mine came out as bright as a rosé after about 6 weeks, and I followed the recipe to a T.

I never added the buckwheat honey. Is that added at the beginning or during backsweetening?

I whipped up a 5-gallon batch yesterday, but didn't have any buckwheat honey, so I just used more clover. It's quickly bubbling away already.

10/19/11 Update

She's still bubbling along. I'm shooting to rerack sometime next week.
Should I wait until fermentation has slowed down considerably?
Or will the Sorbate/Campden combo stop it for sure?

Wait until it is done fermenting before racking or stabilizing. It can be hard to stop an active fermentation.
