I used one spiral of this: http://www.austinhomebrew.com/produc...ducts_id=11626

And let it sit for ~40 days, so just about 6 weeks.

Well, it looks amazing, and if it tastes anywhere close to what it looks like...whew! Thanks for the share, and congrats on the bronze.

Ok thanks! I actually started this one day before yesterday and my OG was 1.110, close enough for me. This is my first melomel, and I too was surprised at how quickly and vigorously the 71b took off...especially after the traditional mead I made with the same yeast to top these off was so sluggish even with the SNA. This baby is going to town!

A day later, and I'm already down to 1.050...this is going to be one fast ferment.
