I've heard the same, but that's the extent of my smarts. Does the same apply when the whites aren't raw? We'll see.

OP, please keep us updated. Your adventure might lead to something awesome we'll all be trying to duplicate in 6 months...

You know what's interesting... prior to checking this thread, I looked at the jug (it's almost ready to be re-racked) and you're right odinsgift... the mead is clearer than the stuff I've had since January.

If my camera hadn't committed suicide, I'd have pictures. I might have to bite the bullet next paycheck and get a new digicam

Well boys and girls...here's another update.

The faint lemon rind scent has given way to a rather more potent and pleasant orange and clove that's more in line with the basic mead recipe that's floating around.

I racked into a glass jug (courtesy of a coworker) filtering out a little particulate but there was some immediately formed inside..but other than that it doesn't look bad.

Haven't tasted it yet...and I won't for quite some time. I'm still concerned with the particulate. Not sure if pectinase would take care of it.. it might.

Updating.. there is nothing to report really other than its very clear with a layer of funk at the bottom and a few floaties. I'm still too **** cheap to buy a camera. Might try it in a couple months.
