Greetings. I made a mead this February using 5 gallons water, 18 lbs. honey, and fermaid-k. Sorry, but I did not take gravity readings. I looked at the mead around thanksgiving, and the entire carboy was near to clearing except for a little cloudiness above the yeast cake. I decided that after christmas, it should be clear enough to rack into a secondary.
Today I looked at the mead, and it is amazingly clear, except for a layer of cloudiness at the top of the liquid level. When I looked at it a month ago, there did not appear to be this layer of cloudiness at the top of the carboy. I am extremely confused as to why this has occurred. The mead smells fine and tastes fine, but I am unsure if it is a good idea to transfer to a secondary with this layer of cloudiness present. I have not added any nutrients since brew day. Is there a reason I cannot think of to account for this top layer of cloudiness in my otherwise clear mead?
