Epic thread.

But to continue the notion of okra creating an interesting mouthfeel, the logical next step would be to make a mead using some hagfish slime. Apparently, that stuff is in a league of its own.

Scared for you (your gut) and yet somewhat excited to hear/see the results and first impressions. Cheers to you.

We are about 2 months in and I have to say I am not sure if the fermentation stalled out or if I have discovered that okra slime dissolves lees because the bottom of the bottle is the cleanest I have ever seen.

No... I didnt take an OG.

I am going to give it a little longer and then get my friends over for the reveal.

If it IS stalled... would a good preventative measure be to toss a few more raisins in there?

If stalled I dont see how adding more fermentables will help things. I would try some fresh yeast before sugars.
