  1. #1

    Default Unexpected problem

    this was a experimental gallon of mead

    used some left over butterscotch mead must added 1 1/2lbs honey and water

    ended up with some black growth floating ontop of the must


    should i chalk it up as a failure and dump it??

    THats pretty nasty looking, what does it taste like? Just kidding, dump and sanitize and sanitize again. Looks like way to much headspace going on there. You may benefit from a little KM and less air on your next batch. What kinds of honey are you guys running into right now? WVMJ

    I went with the inexpensive clover honey from costco... so not a great financial loss though not probably the best honey choice.
