I havent posted since around Sept.. We planned to wait until Feb.28 (9 months since bottling) to open our next bottle but Valentines Day came and I was asked (forced
) by Red to open a bottle that night. I did the opening and she did the pouring. I regret that I didnt get a chance to check the gravity but I can say its greatly improved since Sept.
The nose is much nicer with all the aromas blending into something that can only be called a spiced orange treat. The mead has a much fuller mouth and the alcohol taste has subsided to a very pleasurable level
My only negative at this point is the sediment in the bottom of each bottle. I plan to hook a piece of tubing to my baster and try to suction off the sediment when we try our next bottle, hopefully March 28 at the one year since bottling date. We will give another update at that time if we can wait!!!! There seems to be a shortage of mead in our closet for some reason we just cant seem to stay out of it.
We plan to start another mead soon, the Vanilla a friend from this board shared with us. We know it will be different but cant wait to get it going now that the weather is finally starting to warm up here a bit, it was 81F here today and beautiful blue skies.

This mead sure makes her giggle
