So far this stuff is terrifying. I always approach it wearing goggles and carrying a sword (don't tell Airborne I own a sword), just in case.

The amount of CO2 this sucker is sending out is epic. No matter how many holes I poke in the balloon I have to poke more the next day or the balloon just gets bigger and bigger. When I let some air out of the holes, some okra slime comes with it. If I lick my finger, I get honey-flavored okra slime.

The okra spears appear to have bonded together and travel together, upright, as sort of a raft if I turn the bottle upside down. Thats concerning. Also, we have a good inch to and inch and a half of yeast schmutz at the top. The honey has fallen out of solution and is a lump at the bottom (unconcerning since JAOM-style meads seem to have no problem munching the honey pile a few millimeters at a time) and the water has taken on a greyish green color.

I'm so frigging glad you guys talked me into this!

How is your brew set up so fancy and yet so ghetto at the same time?
