Made a batch of Joes ancient mead back in Sept- has never really cleared, the some of the fruit sank but its pretty cloudy- did bubble away nicely at the beginning but then stopped. Probably it was kept a little too cool
Racked it today the reading on the hydrometer was 1.14 which is sweet?
and the percent potential alcohol is 14, have no idea what it was to start with so no idea what this means
it does smells really good
Its back in a carboy- what to do now? leave it?
should we check with hydrometer again? when?
is it drinkable?
with all the fruit and sediment out the carboy is not very full- is that a problem
