Do any of you degas your still meads? How about adding clarifiers? Should I bother?

My still sweet mead has been in process for almost a year and is rather tasty, I just want to wrap this batch up and bottle as the gravity has not changed in 4 months (1.008) since it has been in the tertiary.

Cheers.

I don't do either. Four months should have clarified and de-gased it.

Thanks for that...two less steps to worry about.

Cheers.
