I made this on the 13th.
My OG was 1.103.
I just tested it with my thief. it was 1.010.

I am a complete and total noob to this stuff and have been reading others talking about adding stuff to affect FG. Are my measurements ok or do I need to do anything?

Looks about good to me. Looks like right around 12.23% plus any fruit sugars or anything from additives.

I'm no pro, but what I do is I rack it about every 30 days until there is no sign of any debris left in the bottom, then I add clarifying agent and finishing agent, wait a week and bottle it, takes patience but my mead always turns out crystal clear with no debris at all in the bottle

But as for aging, I say once it's completely clear, bottle it ad sit it in a dark cool room on its side and let it age that way

I thought bulk aging was the best way to go?

Attaching a photo of my first batch of raspberry melomel. It was a one gallon trial and a raging success, ready to consume within 7 months from start. Have made 15 additional gallons since, tweaking each recipe each time, and love each one! It is one of my favorites next to my raspberry-cherry galengal mead.
