Dark Mead & Cyser

The dark mead and cyser are comming along rather nicely. They still look cloudy, which is the yeast and apple solids.

You can see that the foam at the top of the apple is almost gone, indicating that the yeast almost done. I will be transferring the apple to another carboy soon and putting it in the basement to cool. When it cools, the sediment will settle out and it will be crystal clear.

The Dark mead needs more time. There was over 20lbs honey. I will be transferring the dark mead to two containers and adding some water to lighten it up. I think it will be too sweet and have to much alcohol if I don’t.
