    That is fantastic. How old was it? It can’t have been more that 6 months? Nice work with the yeast feeding.

  4. Hey chris,

    I made it on October 1 so it would have been 5 months old at the competition time. There was a comment from one of the judges about a slight yeast nutrient taste to it, so maybe I overdid it a bit. It will be interesting to see how this mead matures.
