Hey Everyone!
Finally got my camera and computer talking to each other so here is a picture of my first mead ever! The little jar is the extra.. plan to use that to top off when i rack. My original recipie was posted in the NewBee's setion here:

So without further adue:

The picture was taken a few days after I racked my final gravity was 1.001 I added approprate amounts of sorbate/sulfate to take care of any residual yeasties and plan to back sweeten with some honey.. anyone have thoughts on if i should wait till i rack again and just rack onto the honey or should i add it now??
I also just wanted to say thanks to everyone on this board that helped me out.. You guys know who you are and you are all great.. Without you I probably would have really messed this thing up.. Anytime you guys are in the Northern Vermont area let me know.. We can break out a bottle of mead.. better wait a while for it to age tho!

I would wait until the next racking, or maybe before bottling?

Actually that was posted a while ago.. the Mead came out of Primary on 1/26/07 and then on 3/29/07 I racked it again.. this is where I added some more honey.. getting ready to give it a taste now that it has had a little while more.. didn't get a SG after I added the honey so I am going to do that and taste test probably later this week on my days off.. so far I am pretty happy with it.. the honey darkend it up some but didn't cloud it up.. I am shooting for bottleing in late sept or first week in Oct. possibly with 1 more racking in between if it is needed..
