Hopefully corona doesn't mind I had to reuse Some of their bottles. This was my first batch and it came out great.

That sounds good. I may have to make a juniper based mead one of these months.

They should be grateful! Also, it seems your mead has more colour than their beer. :P

Note also the chalkboard area that my SWMBO painted on the wall to surprise me. When I got home from work she had done a full write-up on the meads I had fermenting and aging. I think I'll keep her!
That is too cool!!! I think this is the first picture I have seen with ballons as airlocks. I, too, use ballons. Age old family tradition!!!

Update, I did taste it, fairly strong and dry, but a definite strawberry tart flavor, nothing off about it. One of my best tasting meads so far

My second mead bottled yesterday, it's a cranberry pomegranate mead, it's got a definite peptic haze, I started it before I had any enzyme. It's got a great taste, but it's super strong, I mean burn allllll the wayyyyy downnnnn strong. I'm gonna let this sit for a year or so lol. it was a one gallon test batch, so I may open one bottle at six months and see how it is. I have four other test batches and the samples I've tried are way more mellow then this, I'm bottling his sister in a couple days, a one gallon cranberry pomegranate cyser. It's cloudy also, but it's a taste I'm looking for not a look. Happy brewing!
