My Blackberry Honey Mead. Sat in Primary ONLY for 5 years. As of today its going to NHC. Personally, One of the best examples I've ever had.

Five years in primary?!?! Now you sir, have way more self control than I ever would. Unless of course it started as a 5 gallon batch and is now a 1 gallon batch

JAOM on the right, finished tossing everything in a little over two hours ago. Grapefruit honey ale is on the left, got a couple weeks before it's ready for bottling.

Wish Ihad found this forum sooner! Worked around 8 gallons of basic mead, drank one (tasted like white wine, except the last bottle which tasted like true mead) and have just started filtering to give a crisp look (these were started on the 6th and 9th of March 2011)

have the below still to clear and filter which should be happening tomorrow;

5 years in primary...well, if that doesn't put the whole autolysis myth to rest, I don't know what will!

All 5 Gallons are accounted for. I would have waited longer but I needed the carboy (its a 6.5 Gallon) for another beer.

That is very true.

What I think is even better is the fact that I still have some of the original blackberry honey that I can do a side by side tasting with. Since this is a picture thread, here is one more.
