Try 6 weeks. Unless something went wrong, it should be perfect. It ages really fast. Unless you tried to up the gravity.

Not by Thanksgiving.

Joe's Grape (pyment) is possible, but not the JAOM

Joe's Ancient Orange is something you could ferment this week and drink in March.

It is frowned upon, unless you used ingredients with antioxidant properties. In this case, with 1 pound of honey and 2 cups of brown sugar, well, there's really nothing to save it now.

It's the only tried and true quick mead I've ever done.

There are other good quick meads out there, but "quick" in mead terms usually means 6 months.

Midwest Supplies, when they are out, I consider everyone is out. Other places will substitute without being honest about it.

Ive had some "poppy" JAO that I aged in flip-tops.

If I were you, I'd stabilize it with both campden and sorbate, just to be sure.

No Amarillo, No Citra, No Mosaic

And Simcoe tastes like grapefruit/cat piss.

I've tried Cents as a sub for Amarillo. It is just different.


Any other suggestions?

If you have to dig it up later, then dig it up.

If that's a problem, then hop-growing probably isn't in your cards right now.

Put it in the ground, and if you have to dig up the crown this winter, then dig up the crown. There's no better time to dig up the crown than in the winter.

Patience.

Get a separate bucket and/or carboy so you don't rush it because you want to make another batch of beer.

A good rule of thumb on ripeness: Wait until it falls off the tree. If it bounces, it isn't ripe. If it splits, it's ripe.
