Had a question about the fermentation: Mine has been fermenting for about 4 weeks now. At the three week mark I racked it off the raspberries to new carboys on to some vanilla. Since the racking, there's been zero activity from the carboys. Has the yeast given up? Is my fermentation stuck? Is it done and I'm just paranoid? Any help would be appreciated.

Have you made this again? If so did the same "luck" with the bottle carbonation take place? I'm interested to give this a whirl, it's sounds fantastic.

Nevermind. Apparently I was just paranoid. I think I went a little lite on the honey for mine, but I still have a nice semi-dry (it's not sweet enough for semi-sweet) mead with great raspberry nose and taste up front with a little tart aftertaste. Good stuff. Thanks again for the recipe.

I have not made this again yet - waiting for raspberries to go on sale.

Any pics of the finished product? I'm curious how clear this gets and whether it's still that red once it's cleared.

Can i just divide the ingredients by 3 for a one gallon batch? Also, do you think this would taste good without carbonation?
Thanks!

It's crystal clear - with more of a pinkish, strawberry color than red. I try to remember to take some pics next time I crack one open.

Of course!

I'm sure it would taste fine without carbonation.
