Hahaha it was one of my first meads I made and well I wasn't very thorough about taking notes, off the top of my head for a one gallon mead I did three pounds of honey around half a cup of dried juniper berries and topped it off with bottled spring water, and pitched Lalvin EC 1118. I racked onto an oak product that my lhbs had in stock it's mulched oak whiskey barrel, I used a couple rounded tablespoons. I've racked it off the oak now, it was on for a month, and it's now clearing. I also used peptic enzyme and nutrient. No gravity readings because I never had a hydrometer then lol cheers
