Racking my 2nd gallon of JQGM today. My wife loves it! Thanks Joe.

Anyone want to clarify the steps to get this going before 1st fermentation and then to secondary. when to add what. Thanks, would be much appreciated. Looking to make this after my JAOM. Also a great recipe that some may want to see

(Could even PM me the steps. I know it sounds funny, but I am new to meadmaking and this recipe along with JAOM was given to me as some easy good recipes to follow)

EDIT: Without thinking I posted this. But could still use simple directions. Just mix water+Honey+Welch's into the carboy. Then sprinkle yeast. Recommend to make a starter? And then backsweeten with the 6oz amounts and campden etc to stop the fermentation and backsweeten? Thanks

Yes to everything but no starter needed

Did 2 - 1 gallon batches of JQGM. They have been rack into a secondary with the sulfite and the tablet for about ten days now. However, I have hot noticed any clearing. The recipe stated it would clear fast. Any thoughts?

I never did wait on the clearing aspect of JQGM - if you want it to clear faster - maybe store it at low temps (34- 40) or use gelatin is what I have read.

Just wanted to update on my mead that was bottled 11/11/11. I had some friends crack open a bottle of it today, and they are all messaging me saying how great it is. I only have 2 bottles left that I kept for myself! :P

What is this nasty stuff?!? Some quick background: I made a 1 gallon batch of this exactly according to the recipe. After I racked it into another gallon jug to back sweeten, I added 1 gallon of Trader Joes Blackberry Crush right to the yeast slurry and added the honey. This nasty stuff formed within two days. I was hopping it would sink but after 2 months, it hasn't. I decided yesterday to rack off the mead that was under this. It was crystal clear and tasted fine(but real hot). I'm going to bottle this and age it to see how it comes out but is this some sort of infection? This is only my 3rd mead and my first time adding juice on top of a yeast slurry. Thanks guys!!
