Thanks for the replies. I think I'll try washing the yeast out of primary, build a starter, and then add fermenting starter to the bottles via pipet.

Kilkenny availability in the US

Does anyone know if Kilkenny is distributed in the US, and if so where? I'm in AZ and would like to get a bottle/can or 2 for a friend who loves this beer. Open to a beer swap.

Gritsak, My recipe was almost identical to your recipe, just a couple of small differences. I ended up at 8.6% and hops seemed nearly dead on to the SSR. Mine also had a thinner mouthfeel, what do...

Adding cherries in secondary

I'm planning on adding sweet cherries in secondary to mead. Is it best to cut and pit the cherries or can they just be added whole? I plan on leaving them in secondary for at least 6 months.

If the bubbles you saw during racking stayed put then there is nothing to worry about, they just watched your wonderful mead pass by and did not dissolve into solution. RDWHAHB!

What change did you make that took you from 75% to 85%? I'm continuously hitting 73-75% fly sparging, wouldn't mind a boost if it was as consistent.
