There's someone somewhere on the forums here who made a pine mead. Turned out to have an "earthy" flavor. Might that be something in line with what you're looking for?

I'm looking to do a 1 gallon test batch of Acerglyn (maple syrup mead) as well, so I'd like some answers to this as well.

It depends on the drink. For whiskey or mead, I'll take an old fashioned glass, though I do also use wine glasses for mead. For beer, got to be the imperial pint glass.

Just bottled my Strawberry mead. I only brewed it on Valentine's Day, but it tastes pretty good now. I can only imagine what it'll be like in a year or three.

Corking question

Okay, so I've been corking my mead since I started brewing a couple years back. I've recently read that if a cork isn't kept moist it can shrink and allow air into the bottle. Is this true? If so...

In the future you might want to either use a different yeast from EC-1118 or wait to add the fruit until you rack the mead to secondary. It has a reputation for blowing all the fruit aromas and such...

Bottle bombs generally aren't a risk with MAOM unless you bottle before fermentation is mostly finished. From what I understand using caps on a bottle instead of corks should work fine. I think...

Tw0fish, it was a 6 gallon carboy. Once I get all the fruit bits and whatnot out of it, it'll probably fit in one of my 5 gallon ones, though.

If it finishes fermenting and there's still some energizer suspended in the mead, you might be able to precipitate it out with finings and/or cold crashing.

adding honey is a viable solution, but I'm not sure how much you'd need to add. Do you have hydrometer readings? Also, a semi-sweet mead that's also 18% alcohol will lead to rapid...
