Hey guys. So I had my strawberry melomel sitting in my secondary for a while and it cleared up pretty well, but when I tasted it I wanted more strawberry flavor. So when I racked off the lees I added a fresh pound of strawberries. Only problem is now I have this ball of what I believe is pectin sitting at the top under my strawberries. What should I do about this?

Looks like you're done with the strawberries there, when you rack just make to leave the pectin behind. Maybe add 1/2 (?) tsp pectic enzyme and allow for the haze to clear up. Enzyme works a lot better earlier on though, so results may be off
