So how many bubbles a minute are you getting? And when did you make it rack it off etc? The pumpkin flavor will naturally disperse into the liquid. So that shouldn't be a problem. Man oct nov is to far away. But it's going to be one wild thanksgiving.

I haven't really checked to see if there's a bubbles a minute. I tend to doubt if there's much actual activity, if any--like I said, it gassy when I swirl it to degas.

I started it at 1.147 on 5/13, racked it to secondary and added the pumpkin and spice at 1.012 on 6/6.

FWIW, I racked this again last night and it's still gassy as all get out. SG was down to 1.011, so I guess the EC-1118 I used really did poop out at 18% (which is what I calculate the ABV to be from the OG). I'm hoping the orange flavor balances out over aging, because right now it's overpowering the pumpkin flavor which is pretty subtle anyway. If not, for future batches I would cut the number of oranges by half or more.

Helpful hint that you may already know:

Mr Clean Magic Eraser cleans that print off a bottle and any caps you mark as if it were a dry erase board. I love that thing!

Nope just set it and forget it for a month. Rack into secondary after 30 days onto pumpkin and put it into a dark place for 6 months then bottle for 6 more. Then it should be ready.

Just tasted this on Saturday and I can say this is one thick sweet delicious mead! It's still a touch hot but by the time October rolls around ots going to be perfect! Next step is to up this to 3 gallon batch. The color is amazing and ill bottle this next in a week or two!
