Ok, so we racked the mead later than we expected to, but essentially 3/12 months after the first racking. This is what it looks like. It's cloudy, and you can see the sediment (the yeast) hanging out on the bottom and the ridges of the bottle. At this point, we've racked it into a plastic container with campden tablets to kill the remaining yeast. That should help clarify the rest of the liquid. After it's sat for a week (or two or three, knowing us), we should be able to re-rack it and add honey to sweeten it.

At this point, I can tell you that the mead is better tasting than it was the first time, by far. It is not as harsh as it was, and the color has deepened. I have hopes that this experiment just might work!!
