Additional Mead Notes

Nov 2/09

Reading on the hydrometer is 1.05 (10%)= must is currently at 8% alcohol content.
Continued skimming the gunk off the top. Then figured it too much of a pain in the ass with all that fruit floating on top and just took to giving it a quick swirl to allow some air access to the surface.

First racking
Used sulfite to sterilize carboy, siphon, hose, air stop and plug.
Hydrometer reading 1.062 (8%)= must with 10% alcohol content

Tasting- fizzy! the yeast is still active
a lovely fruit sweet taste
still very cloudy, a dark pinkish colour
