  • Posted in thread: My first mead- bottling question on 08-17-2015 at 03:59 PM
    The best way to help with being patient is to have enough mead that is already aged and
    bottled. Once you have a good supply on hand it's much easier to ignore batches that aren't
    ready yet.

    Bo mm is a good start. In time you can learn how to make a mead that is the way that you would
    like it to taste. My first meads were barely drinkable. Now I can make some that I (and my

    The bits of cork shouldn't be any concern. It may even give your mead a cool homemade vibe in
    the glass.:D

    There are a lot of variables. Has the yeast hit its alcohol tolerance? If it's sweet the yeast
    may have gone dormant. Camden alone won't stop an active ferment, so bottle bombs could be an
    issue. Swee...

    That color is awesome. I added a couple of purple sweet potatoes to a batch of spiced pumpkin
    mead in the fall and the color is orangish. It's just about ready to bottle.��

    You might want your mead to age for at least a year before you start drinking it . Less time
    than that won't do it any justice. Higher alcohol meads can take quite a while to taste good.
    Good luck and...
