G'day!
I've got my 1st (a traditional) and my 2nd (hydromel) currently bubbling away in South Auckland :)

Whereabouts are you and how long have you been making the mead?

I'm outside Palmerston North, just started; about to rack my first Mead for the second time. I did a 26 liter batch and now have 11 liters of back sweetened Mead, 11 liters of spiced Mead using Mulling spices and 5 liters of maple oak Mead. It's clearing nicely and I'm starting a BOMM 5 Gallon this weekend.
