My first tradtional and at just under 2 months old not terribly bad...will be fine in several more months and fantastic in a year. Nice backdrop for the glass, too.

Dark malt braggot at 5 months. It is very drinkable (which is good because my pipeline ran dry and I am drinking it). It has a very interesting taste. I have never had a braggot before so I am hoping it is the correct taste. The glass may look a little fogged as I chilled it first.

Just bottled this a few minutes ago... medium sweet mead from tupelo honey. Bulk aged it for ~1 year. I wanted to let it go longer, but I needed the carboy back, so I'm letting it age in the bottles for another year.

My first finished batch. No-age sweet mead, hence the name!

Here is a pic of my Orange Melomel...wish I would have known about blow-offs earlier as I had 4 days of excitment. 3 gal test and should have made more as this is yummy...and it was just bottled last week. Have a Blueberry / Vanilla melomel fementing now that will be backsweetened with another 3lbs of blueberrys and up to 2 lbs of additional honey. Going for a desert-type mead for the wife and various family members.

Are those frosted bottles? They look nice!!! Did you do any acid tests and balances on this or just straight up tupelo? Mind pming me the recipe and details?

Beginning a five yeast experiment with simple mead.

Attachment 97535


The yeast strains are labeled on the bottles and I used 15 lbs of clover honey in 5 gallons of spring water. I add fermaid every four days and aerate. I will continue that until I get through the 1/3 sugar break then rerack into a secondary until my SG allows for bottling.

Also with the extra must, I used bread yeast and in the growler is bread yeast and freeze dried strawberries. (Honestly, that's what I had lying around and didn't wanna dump the extra...)

I am a long way from results, but ask me in a few months. Any criticism, ideas or questions are welcomed.
