I think part of the charm of this beverage will be the cloudiness...

Thats one area where I went wrong.. I really should have blended it. I mean the yeast ate it up and dissolved it, but the first few weeks were grueling! I would have throw cilantro in there if I were you.

I will re do this, but this time use: Avocados (the right amount this time, you little ****s), tomatoes, limes/lemons, cilantro, maybe peppers, and possibly onions/garlic! I'll make a 5 gallon batch this time

Edit* Still haven't given up on the current avocado brew, just don't know what to do with it lol

Yeah terrible progress. I threw it out about three weeks ago. I tried cold crashing one for a few weeks. The mead separated. So I was going to try both the top layer and the bottom layer to see what each tasted like. The top layer was thick like bacon fat and damn near made me throw up. After talking myself up I tried the bottom layer as soon as it touched my lips I stated throwing up. It was the worst thing I ever tasted. So my mead was a complete failure.
