Now I do trust Fatbloke's experience, but I made side by side one gallon batches, one with Fliechmans and one with D47. The bread yeast was sweeter and the D47 was drier, but I don't think you would call it very dry. There was a very nice residual sweetness and I would use D47 again. You do need to pay attention to the ferm temps with D47 and try to keep them below 68F.

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.
Lol ok.

I made this about 2 months ago and ran a blow off tube. I only get slight bubbles. No kraousin (sp). Pitched WL sweet mead yeast. WLP720. Just pulled a sample. It's good, really sweet. Any thoughts? The fruit is all still floating too..........?

The fruit doesn't always sink. Just leave it alone until it clears then bottle.

Have you jostled it perhaps?

In any event, I would give it more time. Who knows what variable might be at play here.

No it has been in a temperature controlled fridge the whole time. I'm thinking about moving it to a secondary to see if that helps.

Hey all first time poster.

I decided to try the recipe and everything was great, until I went to check it today and saw some brown... stuff on top.

Any idea what it is? Should I be worried?

Fear not the yeast goo. When the mead clears, you can rack the mead away from the goo using a rubber hose. Seriously, I get it all the time.
