Sounds fantastic, how did it come out?

It came out fantastic. It's dry and has a beautiful finish. I was going for a strong vanilla presence, and the vanilla shines with out being too much.

Did you use a clearing agent? This is a thing of beauty!

No just time, it has been bulk aging for over a year. Thank you though.

Nothing special, but this is the JAOM I started in September and bottled today.

I believe that if it is Mead, it is special.

Today I have re-attempted the "wolf-moon" Mead(blackberry Melomel with spices).The first two photos are of the first attempt earlier this year. I'm not making those mistakes again. The second two are from today. Wish me luck.

I appreciate that! My first attempt, so I'm pretty happy with it. It's nothing compared to some of the wild concoctions on here!

Looks good! I also do my primary fermentation in a bucket for ease of use / clean up. Others on the site add fruit in a secondary carboy to give a fruitier flavor. It would be interesting to do a comparison using the same recipe to see what the difference really is.

Happy brewing!
