Beginning a five yeast experiment with simple mead.

Attachment 97535

The yeast strains are labeled on the bottles and I used 15 lbs of clover honey in 5 gallons of spring water. I add fermaid every four days and aerate. I will continue that until I get through the 1/3 sugar break then rerack into a secondary until my SG allows for bottling.

Also with the extra must, I used bread yeast and in the growler is bread yeast and freeze dried strawberries. (Honestly, that's what I had lying around and didn't wanna dump the extra...)

I am a long way from results, but ask me in a few months. Any criticism, ideas or questions are welcomed.

Mine cleared up quite nicely, but I cheated. I used Super Kleer finings. I agree with you, it does taste better at room temp rather then cold.

Head space in a bulk aging vessel?
1 Attachment(s)

I've racked to secondary, and stabilized with kmeta and sorbate. My plan is to let it bulk age in my carboy. It is already starting to clear, however I ended up with a fair bit of headspace, should I top it up or leave it be? What should I top it up with, if anything? OG of 1.135 FG of 1.009 and it is HOT!

Thank you!
