I have finished my first bottle of mead brewing and I've added some pictures ^_^

Recipe
900gr. honey
1300ml water
50gr. Dextrose

Primary: 4 weeks
Secondary: 2 weeks

Added powdered eggshells after secondary (now known not to be necessary)

Stabilization: through cooling to ~2 degrees Celcius for 1 week

Bottled after stabilization but noticed a haziness, after 3 days the mead was as clear as in the picture. Racked it one final time before applying the cap a week later (today).

Taste & Smell can be found here (http://www.gotmead.com/forum/showpost.php?p=207252&postcount=11).

Here's the pictures, they're a bit small but crisp clear. I've held my hand behind the bottle in one and placed a detergent bottle behind it in the other, you can clearly see the writing on that come through. The wording is very eligible.

Looks good. Very clear. Wait a sec. Just sugar and no honey?
