Here's my JAOM (only after 3 or 4 weeks) from a hydrometer sample I took and then cold-crashed afterwards... It's that low cause I drank some of it.

Get a bag( 1 gallon jug use a plastic shopping bag, for carboys a trash bag should work) roll it length wise so that the opening is at one end and the bottom is on the other. Insert the bottom part of the bag into the carboy. Invert carboy so the fruit is at the neck and blow the bag up like a balloon and
gently pull the bag out allowing it to only deflate enough to fit through the neck.It should pull the fruit out with it. this also works with wine bottles that the cork has pushed into the bottle.... and of course there is a youtube video on this,
and yes I realize this is but a helpful tip IMO

Wow, well okay then. This may be but I'm definitely glad you threw this in there.

This is my first batch of mead. Its a cherry melomel. This is about one week into fermentation. Thinking about making it a sparking. Not sure yet. I added pitted fresh cherries to the primary, depending on how it tastes when i rack it to the secondary i might add more.

My first attempt at mead, its a cinnamon cyser. Just racked it into the secondary yestarday, it tasted like rocket fuel. But im sure it will taste better with some more time. I never got the OG cause I was brewing it gehtto style at first, it was at 0.995 yestarday.

Flumpy, compared to mine, your set up looks like a lab.
