I made this recipe 3 months ago with a sweet mead yeast. 3.3 pds DME, 6.6 pds of honey and 2 pds cranberrys fresh. OG 1.082. I have been sitting at 1.026 for a month now..SHould I repitch or keep and bottle. It is stable but just want to be sure it is done.

it's done, if you want carbonation, add some sugar and bottle in champaign bottles or beer bottles, if not you can use wine bottles with regular corks.

WOW, we made almost the exact same thing.

on 10/16 I brewed a mead/braggot with 7 # wildflower honey, 1.5 # maris, and 1 # wheat malt.

Racked to secondary a month later and added 2 # fresh/frozen cranberries.
I even used the sweet mead yeast too.

I'm still waiting for mine to clear though. It'd be interesting to swap brews and see how different they taste. I hope to crack the first bottle for turkey day '08.
