Just made this today. I've got other meads fermenting, but this one will probably be my first to mature.

I've only made one batch (really need to do another) and had one bottle at the 8mnth make. It was the best by far. Need to make 2 more gallons so I can put one back a year.

Has anyone ever had a freak circumstance where this has gone dry? I made some up at the end of summer, bottled after about 2 months and at that time it tasted quite sweet and rich, almost to the point of being thick. As I said, I bottled it. About 2-3 weeks later, I opened one of the bottles and to my surprise it had carbonated up and was much dryer tasting. I cracked a couple of the other bottles to make sure they weren't building unhealthy amounts of pressure but they didn't seem to be, so I closed them back up. Has anyone had this happen? I followed the recipe to a t, so I figured the bread yeast wouldn't have a lot more to give. The fizzy result wasn't bad, still better than other wines I've had, but definitely much more similar than the golden goodness that the sweet mead was. Anyone else have that experience?

I started a batch of this about a month ago and smelled the fermenter today. mmm smells like honey and oranges. delicious.

If Im going to bottle this stuff in wine bottles, do I need to filter it?
