Thread: JAO not clearing?

  1. Default JAO not clearing?

    3 lbs. wild honey
    1 gal water
    1 orange
    25-ish raisins

    Preface: This isn't entirely a JAO, but it's pretty similar. I had brewed it before I discovered this site using a recipe I found here. As far as I can tell, though, it's the same as JAO only it says to rack the mead off the fruit once primary fermentation has stopped, which I did. So I guess I voided the JAO guarantee, but only slightly?

    Anyway, the reason I'm a little concerned about it is that I brewed it on 7/20/09. Since then I've brewed a cyser and a metheglin (8/4/09) which are both crystal clear, but the JAO copy is still cloudy, despite the fact that the website (and JAO threads) say it should be clear around 2-3 months. Am I just being impatient here, or could I have screwed this up by racking off the fruit after primary fermentation had finished (8/9/09)?

    Anytime you change the recipe, you void Joe's warranty.

    Did you use a different yeast?

    The simplest thing to try to speed clearing is to put the batch in a fridge for a few weeks. That will often cause particulate matter to drop out of suspension faster.
