Peach mead, a big one at 19% abv, about seven months old now. I think I might have posted this before, if so, sorry. I entered this in the Mazer cup, judging next weekend.

Agreed. Wish I had the patients to let my meads clarify like that.

The small ones where bought in a pet store and the bigger in a portuguese brewshop.

You probably can find those on ebay or amazon

During fermentation/carboy conditioning it was re-racked three times, after bottling there was still some sediment on the bottom so I carefully de-canted, drank the drudges, washed the bottles, and re-filled for the competition. It is a really beautiful mead. As you know, oxidation is not a factor in meads as it is with beer, so multiple transfers are great for clarity.

Default Father's day traditional update

Just got this bottled today:










About 9 months since I pitched the yeast, it's been oaked and backsweetened. It's good stuff at right about 14% abv.

Nice mead, and lovely kitchen.
