    Well I bottled. I guess we'll find out in two weeks.

    Bottled mine today!

    I've never used this yeast but it is a sweet mead yeast, so residual sugars are going to be
    left behind. Maybe it is actually done fermenting. Reading some reviews on the Wyeast site, one
    person write...

    I started a cider on 8/5, 5 gallons of apple juice, 2 pounds of corn sugar and Wyeast Sweet
    Mead Yeast. The OG was 1.062 and after a month it was 1.010, so I racked it over to a secondary
    (in hindsigh...

    Anytime. I'd add to primary so as to minimize loss to lees, as adding to secondary will likely
    cause refermentation...and hence more lees.Thanks for your help!

    I'd top off with a honey/water mix of the same OG, so as not to "dilute" the mead...Ok, makes
    sense! Just wait until the fruit settles or should I just do that after I rack it over to a
    secondary?

    It is what I would do.Thanks!

    Anyone?

    Well, I think I have my answer. I woke up at 6am to find it had blow out the bung and airlock
    in our second bedroom. Triple Berry (raspberries, blueberries and strawberries) mix ALL over
    the place. I ...

    I made my first melomel today but I think I could have added too much fruit. I added 3lbs of
    frozen triple berry mix and 2.5 pounds of honey to my one gallon jug. Topped it off with water,
    leaving the...
