Finally got my camera and computer talking to each other so here is a picture of my first mead ever! okay my first homebrew anything ever!! The little jar is the extra.. plan to use that to top off when i rack.
The picture was taken a few days after I racked my final gravity was 1.001 I added approprate amounts of sorbate/sulfate to take care of any residual yeasties and plan to back sweeten with some honey.. anyone have thoughts on if i should wait till i rack again and just rack onto the honey or should i add it now??
I also just wanted to say thanks to everyone on this board that helped me out.. You guys know who you are and you are all great.. Without you I probably would have really messed this thing up.. Anytime you guys are in the Northern Vermont area let me know.. We can break out a bottle of mead.. better wait a while for it to age tho!
