Day 42 now. Last SG was 1.0 a few weeks ago... tasted great then (although maybe too much citrus aftertaste)! Still bulk aging for now. It has cleared a little with some accumulated lees since this photo... but not much. Still a long ways from being able to read a newspaper through it.
I was thinking about adding pectinase and/or other clearing agent (bentonite, sparkaloid) in early november if there hasn't been much improvement. I would like to stabilize with potassium sorbate and sulfite in late nov or early december... as well as back-sweeten just a little bit. The last mead i made was too sweet. What are others thoughts on this plan?
I wanted to drink a bottle or 2 for xmas/new years! I don't mind if mead is a little "hot" tasting...
