Re: How long can I leave mead in the primary
I'll bet it'll be just fine.
Your first order of business is to take care of yourself. As a Lyme disease sufferer (more than once), I suggest that you can always make more mead. Other things in life have more difficult recipes with ingredients far more scarce. I'll bet you one whole dollar that you'll be happily drinking that mead sometime in the future, toasting to our health.
No worries. No worries.
ps...if it matters at all, my second mead was a wonderful honey lemon mead that stuck. I restarted and the batch bubbled forever. All in, I think it was over two months from pitching to secondary, maybe longer. It's still downstairs aging now but it tastes so good that I can hardly wait till I bottle. No yeasty flavor...just wonderful mead.
