    Well, I'll toss the charred blocks in and I'll wait and see what happens. I probably won't end
    up bottling until December anyhow. So I'll see/taste first hand how aging effects the fusels.
    It's split ...

    I have no knowledge if this will work, but as far as I know, fusels age away in a couple of
    months, so no need to dump it. Just bottle it and save it for Christmas :D

    If it ain't enough, splash rack it away... Meads are very resistant to oxidation when compared
    to beer. I recently had a pyment get that nasty H2S smell (fart). I splash racked it twice and

    I remember the city coming around after my nosey neighbor called someone saying "yeah,it looks

    By the large number of stories about ever-smelling buckets, I don't believe it's possible,
    dude... :(

    Actually, it was bought at a supermarket... I don't believe they'll take my notification into
    account :DThat makes total sense... Thanks :mug:

    That's just me, but For a first ferment I would go with a simpler recipe, like Joe's Ancient
    Orange Mead (google it). You will learn a lot from it with less risks of making something
    undrinkable. :D
