Personally not only would I leave off the grapefruit pith but I would also "skin" the segments as well. The segment membranes are so much more bitter and tough than with an orange. I think if you do this the sweet mead yeast has a chance of making the mead finish sweet... if you leave the rind and skins on my bet would be on dry as a bone.

I would use the zest (either grate it off or use a peeler) and just juice the rest of the grapefruit.

I have a question and I'm sure it has been answered but reading through 98 pages doesn't sound fun... After a few months does it need sorbate and kmeta to stabilize or can t be bottle directly from primary?

I've never used sorbate or kmeta. With that said, I drink this stuff too quickly to bottle-age, so take what I say with a grain of salt

I bottled mine directly from the primary just like the recipe calls for. After a minimum of sitting for 2 months with nothing added during that time, i'm not too worried about renewed fermentation or bottle bombs if that's your concern. If you wanted to backsweeten, i'd stabilize it before adding anything else. But why mess with a fool proof recipe?

I need to bottle mine. It's going on three months for me.

I made my first batch of this back in January and just tried it finally after about 3 months in the bottle. Not bad. I've only had two commercially available meads, but this was better than one of them. Not as good as the other (the polish Apis Jadwiga mead).

Started a batch of this last night, the fermentation on this is crazy. Started in 45min and this morning the airlock was full of the brew even. Is it because bread yeast has been developed more for CO2 production over alcohol? Makes me want to use bread yeast in more things lol.

Just started a batch of JOAM myself and had the level just low enough it didn't foul the airlock but I put the jugs in the bathtub the first day or two anyway just in case. Can't wait to try it.
