I'm not religous, nor do I believe in fate, but....

Has it occured to you that this whole Sandy thing is God / the Universe trying to destroy the abomindation you've created? Throw your fermented okra beverate into the eye of the storm.

So what won? Tubes or damned Dalai Llamas?

Wait, What?

Throwing celery mead into the storm might cause it to rapidly multiply into a steady rain of celery mead, causing MASSIVE suicides.

I can neither confirm nor deny any orgies at this time.

I can however confirm that the foam went down (kind of like detergent or starsan foam) a couple days ago so I topped off with a little more water. Now there is about an inch of water above the okra "raft" with a singular seed that bobs up and down with the yeast farts. There might come a day where I have to euthanize this sucker before it causes a public menace.

This potion is looking more and more like mead. the strata of honey on the bottom is gone (though I can tell all of the honey has not been "eaten" just yet) and it has taken on a decidedly golden meady color, with a greenish-brownish tint. The flacid and soggy okra spears are still globular at the top of the bottle where the curve meets the neck. Above that is about an inch more golden colored liquid, with a raisin and some okra seeds floating and bobbing in it. Too soon to tell how its going to taste, but mead is definitely being made.

It sits on my setup next to a liter bottle of persimmon and cinnamon mead, btw, of which the wife finds much less frightening...
