Everything you care about will come to naught - your children will rue the day they were brought forth screaming into such an accursed lineage!

Just kidding! it'll just come out a bit drier, maybe more fruity (remember the yeast are eating the fruit juice bits as well) than had it had the extra half lb.

I often use 3 lbs since its so hard to get a half pound jar ;-). And by gum, I usually like my mead :-).

Hehe, you can read all my JAOM and JAOMesk misadventures here in the forums... so far the only nasty one I put out was the lavendar death jug.

Well as far as JAOM goes, 2-3.5 pounds of honey is good. 2 pounds being dry and 3.5 sweet. And then adjust accordingly to your tastes. If it's a 1 gallon batch I reckon it should be good.

Holy cannolis, that's gorgeous. How long did you let it sit in the jug to get that clear, and what yeast did you use?
