So I made a peach melomel last year, with the peaches (peeled) straight in the fermenter. The flavor is lighter than I'd like (given I had 18 lbs of peaches in 5 gallons), but my main issue was that getting it out of primary was a nightmare! I tried siphoning, but it had too much stuff in it and would get clogged. I tried siphoning with a hop bag over the tube, but I had to clear the hop bag and resiphon every minute or so, which made me concerned about diluting the mead. Eventually, I gave up, and put a grain bag over a funnel, and poured. It still took maybe half an hour because I kept having to stop and rinse the grain bag, because it would stop draining.
Clearly, I need another method for the next time I make a peach melomel, but in the meantime, I need suggestions for racking it out of secondary. It's much more filtered, but it still has a lot of little stringy bits of peach. I don't expect a totally clear mead, but I do want to get it to the point where it doesn't feel like there are strings in your mead. Does anyone have suggestions for dealing with/clearing/filtering a melomel with a lot of little particles of fruit?
