Brobi...how long did you age this before deciding to bottle? And is this dry; if not, what is the SG upon bottling?

A variant on Yooper's banana wine recipe. Changed it into a melomel. Don't have a picture of the final product but it's still in bulk aging so I can take one tomorrow. Crystal clear, finally getting around to backsweetening with some fresh honey.



In the carboy:

If any of you have tried this recipe you will know that it looks similar to water that has been squeezed out of a mop. It has steam rising off it in this picture but was pale grey and I couldn't see through it. I had some serious questions about it clearing at this point.

In secondary:

Has since cleared to a beautiful golden brown colour. Crystal clear and is in a tertiary demijohn of 1 Gal. It has been aging going on two years now simply because I have been flat out finishing uni and finding work. Bottling will be in two weeks and have taken the weekend off specifically for it!
Primary: Cherry Melomel


Bottled: JAOM, Amber Ale

Not the greatest pic, but the only one I managed to get before we drank it all. :lol:

This is the spiced pumpkin cyser I posted about back in post 253 or so...

INDEED IT WAS drinkable for today! 6 months old, and delicious.

Followed this recipe:


I'll definitely be making it again. I might add some pumpkin pie spice though..

Long time lurker here. Been making mead for a couple of years. Here's my Orange Berry Punch. Bottled on 11-7-12, and primed for carbonation. I know I cracked into it early, but my stores of JAOM are gone. Amazingly smooth for being as young as it is. Berry and orange on the nose, then lots of honey with a berry/orange aftertaste. Murky, but I take credit for opening preemptively.

Blackberry vanilla mead I made back in March. It slightly carbed in the bottle. Turned out amazing.

2010 (started the day before Thanksgiving that year) traditional mead made with [regional] wildflower honey and using EC-1118. Not carbonated, just beyond words in a glass. Sweet enough that you taste the honey and not 'hot'. At 18%, you might expect more alcohol flavor, but there's none that I could detect.
