You're just now realizing it because you haven't been drinking.

*Actual serious question* What I can't ignore is the fact that the nast brown lees in JAOM were almost NONEXISTANT in the okra mead. Why is this, and can this knowledge be used for good instead of evil?

JOAM has a lot more foreign matter in it. I've never made a show mead though, so I'm not sure how much lees the honey puts off.

Could you use an eyedropper of slime on a gallon of mead and get clear mead? On 5 gallons?

Thing is, mead is too precious to mess with like that for the experiment...

Should we be??

I'm not going to put any okra into MY mead... If you're so interested, well...

I still think an inferno (hot peppers) mead should be your next attempt. Let it finish a bit sweet, which should help balance some of the heat...

I'm talking about a mead that's 18% (or better) with enough hot peppers to almost spontaneously ignite.

Okra slime = sediment solvent?

I'll take the sediment thanks.

You scoff... I think I'm on to something personally. Not sure what is the problem.
