Looks like a clove to me.

That would be a clover, I read afterwards that u should smash the raisins a bit so that's why they expanded

Being the eager beaver I am, I bottled this after sitting in secondary for a week. A buddy of mine brought over a store bought commercial mead(Texas Renaissance Festival Traditional Mead) and we gave mine a side by side comparison. The color was almost identical to what was purchased, and the only taste difference was in mine you could taste the alcohol...Along with everything else in the mead, but 100 acceptable for a two month fermentation! I bottled it to age off the alcohol burn and plan on enjoying this immensely when the time comes. I did not take a before and after hydrometer reading, only an after...But, the tube gave my wife and I a buzz!

I love the bottles. Are they labels?

Um, kind of...They are vinyl decals I cut using my plotter. I make signs, vehicle lettering and junk and thought this would look much more awesome than printed labels. If anyone would like some labels like this let me know lol It is what I do and we can knock some out!

It never came through? I sent you a PM here...Maybe it is lost in the tubes? I have not finished updating my site with and you can not directly email me from the site. Maybe there was a typo? Either way, just let me know what you were wondering about...Thanks and later!

It finally showed up some 5 hours later...Just an FYI lol

My og was about 1150, so assuming we both did it the same you have about 17.6%. Nice!

That is a nice amount! I changed the yeast, but used same amount of honey, and everything. Thanks for this! I thought about doing one of those web mead calculators to see what I got...but this works just as well! Hahaha

No problem. I'm just waiting for mine to clear a bit more and for my fruit to drop. Hopefully just in time for the holidays :-)
