Question: First Apricot Mead. 1st Rack yesterday = 30 days, 2nd 60, 3rd 90 prior to cork bottling. Settling nicely in secondary - should I allow to separate this early or allow the apricot puree more time by rocking carboy a bit. It should clear on its own, I don't want to loose flavor. Very, very dry at this point. Thanks for any input. It is going to be a loooong six month wait to get a good first sample taste!

While the people are virtuous they cannot be subdued; but when once they lose their virtue then will be ready to surrender their liberties to the first external or internal invader." -- Samuel Adams, 1779
