Although it is off gassing so much this morning that the airlock is actually hissing continuously and loudly... I have never had that happen before.

*Edit* I tried to take another video this morning and got one where you can kind of see it but I had to turn the quality up so high that the couple second video is 30 mb and its in mp4 format so not sure how to share it. It s kind of cool though because you can hear it violently hissing in the background as well.

I have tasted two carrot wines and a carrot mead over the past two years. They all were nice and reminded me of off-dry Riesling. I was told the wines were both at one year mark and the meas was almost three years. Oh, one of the wines had some ginger to it.

Arpolis: my cucumber mint wine from the 7 in 7 challenge turned out quite well, but so very cucumber-y. It will be used as a salad dressing blended with some olive oil and balsamic vinegar, because I do not think anyone could drink it straight up. Perhaps added to a fruit and juice drink, or into a bloody mary. Good thing I only made 2 liters!

*UPDATE* As you can see the carrot has mellowed out quite a bit and is actually clearing really quickly.

We have made carrot wine before, it does not taste like carrots in the end, unless you top off with raw carrot juice when you bottle but then it wont be clear. It tastes like a nice white wine. Having added some honey to it you are going to get a nice carrot mead that doesnt really taste like carrots but will taste good and the honey is going to add body so enjoy. Stop worrying and take good care of it. WVMJ

Carrots in the primary. Hmm, well I can see the reason for the vigious fermentation. Carrots have a lot of sugar in them. The only 2 veggies that have more is the Sugar Beat and I think that sweet potatoe. So, yeah for giving the yeasties more sugar.
