    I am 2 weeks in to a 1 gal batch. It is starting to clear. I want to use the yeast cake to get
    a 3 or 5 gallon batch going. Can I rack now (not bottle, just rack). or do I need too wait the
    full month...

    One last thing, I made a Peach/Mango mead using peach mango juice from Costco. It's almost two
    years old now. It is drinkable, but nothing great. Probably my least favorite melomel I have
    done. The fl...

    If its got that "hot bite" taste (especially on the finish) then it's probably fusels produced
    during fermentation (for the reasons you noted) and will age out. May take a while. Bottling
    will speed t...

    Also, if you are saying it is not in bottles and the jug it is in has a lot of head space, then
    I would get it in bottles asap (add some sulphite). As long as it doesn't taste oxidized or
    vinegary the...

    Mead is notorious for taking a long time to age, especially if best practices are not used. You
    may find that you open a bottle 6 months from now and it is wonderful or it may still be awful
    a year fr...

    Just some observations from making 4 batches of this stuff. My first batch made with Costco
    fresh pressed apple juice was just ok. Had a real pungent sour aftertaste and only became
    drinkable after 6 ...
