I too would go with either a Wine Expert Vintner's Reserve or World Vineyard white - and, given your stated preference in style and age, maybe a Luna Bianca, Riesling, or a Liebfraumilch. Too bad you...

I've tried several of the Polish meads and have found them to be very well done.

I occasionally tap the side of the carboy with my finger over a period of a few weeks to allow the very fine yeast residue to sink and I never rack my JAOM.

As Tusch indicated, it will be very dry unless you stabilize and sweeten with more juice and/or sugar. I use fairly low gravity cran/pom juice to make dry sparkling wine in crown cap bottles.

Some would argue that there's not much difference in bulk and bottle aging but I think that a long (one year+) bulk aging helps bring the flavors together much better. There's also less temperature...

This Barleywine is now 3 1/2 years old and I still have 8-10 bottles left. Last summer it took Best of Show at the local county fair among 80+ very good beers judged by BJCP judges. It's lasted as...

The containers came from a local Culligan drinking water vendor. They're designed to hold 5-gallon carboys and since they've moved to plastic they didn't need them any longer. I picked up four of...

No, it isn't too late. To drink by Thanksgiving, keep your original gravity a little lower - maybe 1.080 - 1.090 and it will be ready sooner. I made a sweet potato pie mead, very similar to pumpkin...
