Made a 3 gallon batch today, no real issues to report. Subbed raspberry honey that LHBS had plenty of. Seems to be a straight forward recipe.

Hi All!

So, it's been about a year since starting this batch. I'm ready to bottle now, but theres this strange white stuff along the top rim of the mead. It's kind of like little granules... For the longest time, there was a very small amount of berry residue from transferring it from the primary carboy, but that seems to have settled... now theres this white stuff.

I want to know - is this ok to bottle? What is the white stuff, and does it mean my mead has gone bad? I'm worried that the airlock may have been too low on water for a little while.. but not too long. Could it have gotten contaminated?

Thoughts? I really want this to turn out, but I don't want to kill anyone!

Thanks for your help,
