But will it do that with a JAOM? The yeast tolerance isn't enough to convert all the honey, so wouldn't you be left with a thin layer of honey at the bottom, with a layer of lees on top of it?

I never have, but I say that while knocking wood. I dont know much about the science behind it, but I can tell you that all of my JAOM has had fully converted honey (with residual sweetness, so maybe not fully converted SUGAR molecules). But this might just be because I wear my magic sleeping cap.

I need to bottle my JAOM tonight to bring on vacation with the family for them (and me) to try this out! I think I may just transfer using a funnel to a growler. I don't care if I get some yeast and other stuff in there, it'll all sink and hopefully harden enough when I keep it in the fridge for a few days.

The top portion is getting a little darker a few days later.

Making any changes at all voids the warrantee on the recipe. If I am not mistaken, that particular yeast will yield a much drier product than good ole Fleishmanns. But hey, if you like dry mead, thats not a problem.

This recipe is like any other recipe for cooking or making anything... I suggest doing it a couple times to the letter and then experimenting with variations.

For the record, none of your pictures show anything visibly out of the ordinary at all.

Aside from prayer and/or superstition, I would avoid "doing" anything at all with this for the next couple months. Just let God, the faeries, and science do its thing.

First try. I did use d47 yeast instead of bread yeast. Hopefully it turns out well!

Fatbloke, I believe it was, said that d47 will make this recipe very dry. FYI.

I used room temp water and shook it after I put the yeast in. Would either of these cause issues? Dumb stopper keeps slipping up.
A plastic zip tie looped through the handle and around the stopper should hold it down until it dries.
