    Default Re: 3rd week of my first mead/ here are my gravity readings so far.

    I have a few of the paper birch here on my land, but the gray birch are much more numerous. For some reason unknown to me, the gray birch seem to have a habit of rotting (inside) once they get past a certain age/size, and grow fungus on them, then fall down. The last few Winters have been very hard on the younger ones, heavy, wet snow and ice on multiple occasions have left them bent over in arches, some touching the ground. I don't know if they'll ever straighten up and grow right.

    Previous reading vs current reading.

    #1. 1.024 / 1.016
    #2. 1.028/ 1.020
    #3. 1.000/ .998

    I think #3 is just about done, but I will wait until all are completely done before racking.

    Any thoughts on my numbers and my plan?

    Looking good! It's either very close or done at that gravity of .998. Be sure to rack carefully so as to admit as little air as possible.
