Do Bochets take longer than other meads in clearing? Reason I'm asking is because i started a traditional BOMM and a Bochet BOMM the same day and the traditional is just about cleared and the bochet is as cloudy as the day i racked it over to secondary.

Typically things that are boiled are faster to clear because the proteins are coagulated and drop out faster. I guess there are exceptions for every rule.

I've got a bochet cyser aging for months now, and is still very cloudy....was a gallon batch, down to 3 qts after a couple rackings, but I happened to buy a 3 qt container of cider to make it, so, with a slightly larger stopper, it's sitting right nice, just cloudy....am in no rush, this can sit as long as it takes...AND is small enough to stuff in the spare basement fridge ;)
