I started my first batch of mead Feb. 2011 with a beginning SG of 1.102 the yeast used was EC1118 as my friends wanted a very dry mead. Racked first part of April and bottled in Aug. with an ending SG of .999. The mead appeared to be very clear after bottling. The bottles have been kept in a dark and cool (approx 65 deg) basement room. I took a bottle out of one of the cases today and noticed what appeared to be strands of yeast. My question is, can it be cleared or am I stuck with a cloudy mead ?

Thanks Doug
