One way to ensure you have enough patience to allow your mead to clear is to read every page of this thread. I just finished page 83. My favorite part was when people on page 11 were saying, WOW This thread is up to 11 pages already!!!

Remember, honey and bread yeast want to make mead, not toxic sludge.
For the record, the balloon didn't have any breakdowns, and the S-style airlock is now attached, and has activity so all seems to be well. Thanks again

I would say my favorite part is LoneTreeFarms wine label on the previous page

Ok, I modified the recipe tonight for another batch....basically went with a peeled orange and Lalvin EC-1118, I pitched the yeast at 8pm and by 8:21 had airlock activity...is this normal?

I used the bread yeast and mine was bubbling pretty good in about 10-15 minutes.

The original recipe states the mead should start to clear at two months. It also states if you wait long enough the oranges will sink. Before racking or bottling should I wait till the oranges sink and about how long does that take?

I just made my first batch of this. My question is why does it say to keep it dark? The only reason for keeping it in the dark that I know of is to keep the uv light from skunking the hop oils and I'm pretty sure I left out hops.
