Good eye! a friend gave me some empty wine bottles and that was in with them, it was for a single malt scotch. I thought it would look great with a mead in it so I removed all the labels. It is 700ml and a really heavy glass
I plan on making a strawberry rhubarb mead in the fall that I bet will look great in that bottle

Default My first mead

made with orange blossom honey and nottingham ale yeast. SG = 1.085.

primary fermentation slower than expected, just made it to 1.015 today after about 31 days. Very little activity left, racked it to secondary so I can start a second batch.

Flavor is a little odd, suspect slight contamination. Fermentation didn't start for almost 3 days.

This was my first attempt...was supposed to be a "Strawberry Lemon" mead that came out just "Lemon". Dumped a couple pounds of berries into the mead and let it sit for a while to produce this. MUCH closer to what I was looking for.

Do you smell or detect rotten eggs? When yeast is stressed it releases H2S. It can be removed, but is a bit of a process.

Here is my Strappleberry mead. (strawberry apple). With the red strawberries and the yellow apple juice I extracted and the honey it turned out a brilliant orange color. It's always fun seeing the different colors that emerge with fruit.
