Hey guys, my last three batches of mead have turned up with this weird looking yeast post ferment and it smells very sour. I haven't run into this problem with the last 10 gallons I've made though. I was wondering if anybody has run into problems like this. I don't think it infected as I'm very careful with sanitation but maybe with the warmer weather, could that be throwing a wrench in my mead? If you have any thoughts I'd love to hear em.

That can be caused by poorly flocculating yeast, or proteins in the honey. Either way you’re fine, even in competitions, clarity isn’t a big category.

Other than vinegar, it’s prob the smell from stressed yeast. What were your nutrients and amounts, and what temp was the room at during fermentation?
