Good looking bottle, let it age as long as possible....the flavors really come out with time!

Hello here is my attempt at this beautiful sounding recipe. I have never made mead before. I had some at a brewery last night and decided to make some today. I used all the ingredients listed in the recipe, combined in a brew pot and heated until hot (175F). I allowed the mix to cool to 80F and added 5 tsb of yeast nutrient and LALVIN 71B-1122 WINE YEAST. My OG is spot on at 1.13. Only thing I did different was that I did not puree the strawberries. I mashed some and left a lot in their current frozen form. Here are some pics. Will keep you posted.

Ok so I woke up this morning to find the airlock blown off and foam pouring out of the top of the carboy. Is my batch ruined? I know the foam is from very active yeast. How can I control it?

You can get a blow off tube or you can sanitize a piece of aluminum foil (about 6 inches wide) and loosely cap the top of your fermenter...several inches should drape down the side, to prevent wild yeast from getting in. Do this for 2 days and then you can put back on your airlock.

Mine is getting better as it goes along. It is 6 months old now since I bottled it. It still has a very slight hint of a bitter taste but I believe that is from the strong honey I used and probably the berries too. Flavor is great to me.
