I've made a few JAOM's - and honestly, while the clove is present, it isn't screaming CLOVE in your face. It's definitely a metheglin, no doubt, but one in a one gallon batch is pretty balanced with the orange.

Bottled the JAOM I started on leap day. It was crystal clear with no visible bubbling, but except for a couple of raisins the fruit had not dropped to the bottom. Yeast was stirred up quite a bit in the bottling process so it didn't go into the bottles as clear as I would have liked. It will settle out fine. Tasted good. Pretty dry and not as sweet as I expected. Planning on aging this out until the next leap day, with many a batch in between.
Starting gravity: 1.112
Ending gravity: 1.016

Well i started it Thursday night and there is activity in the airlock but its not nearly as active as the beer I've brewed or the Apfelwein but it has clouded up so i assume that its doing its thing. I just expected a little more activity. Well, the yeast know what it's doing. Just seems sluggish to me. I'm gonna RDWHAHB.

This is my first attempt at brewing ever. So I followed the recipe pretty much exactly but instead of using the bread yeast I used the Wyeast sweet mead and I just don't know what I am looking for. This is the picture of my mead today and I started it yesterday 6/4/2012. Do I need to dump this batch or just pitch some bread yeast and hope for the best? Any help would be much appreciated!

Thank you!!!

Looks like it's bubbling; presumably that's not just because you shook it.

I sure as heck wouldn't dump it. I'm a mead amateur but I would think it would still turn out alright using the sweet mead yeast as JAOM is a sweet mead. Search the thread, I'm sure others have used that yeast as well. Good luck.

This batch is less than 24 hours old and you're already asking if you should dump it? Never never never never say that again. I'm sure your Sweet Mead Yeast is going to do just fine - but even in the off chance it doesn't....there are plenty of trouble shooting techniques you can use to fix the problem. If it's not bubbling in the next 24-48 still, search "Stuck Mead Fermentation" or "Stuck JOAM Fermentation". I'm sure both of those searches will give you plenty of detailed discussions on the issue.
