A quick question regarding my first JAO - not found an answer to this in searching, but I may be blind
My first JAO was started in the middle of March, I have followed the recipe in the gotmead Newbee guide, and eagerly checked up on it every day, it is stored in a dark cupboard.
Early in July, the oranges and raisins all fell to the bottom of the demijohn. About a week later we had a hot weather spell, and the fruit raised back up to the top of the demijohn again.
I left it a while (busy at work, got mead amnesia!) and am concerned that I may have left the JAO too long in the demijohn now ?
The raisins are still at the top, the orange and cloves at the bottom, the mixture is clear and the airlock is intact and sealed. I have not added any sorbate etc, just JAO recipe and left it.
Thanks for any advice, dont want to poison myself
