Notes

Brays One Month Mead. Orange Blossom Honey.
OG 1.107, FG target is 1.002 or less. Actual FG was 0.996. ABV = 14%

Nitrogen/nutriet/K2CO3 on day0. Nutrient/Nitrogen on days 2 and 5. Stir/degass on all days 1-5 and then water in the airlock at day5. Rack after 2 weeks. Bottle after 5 weeks.

Plan is to split the batch after racking to the secondary and age one gallon (0.5 gallon w/ American Oak and 0.5 gallon w/ Hungarian Oak).

Very good, drinkable, low fusel mead at 1.5 months w/o oak and fantastic at 6+ months. For the oak experiment, I Preferred Hungarian medium oak to American medium toast oak. 14 days for both at ca. 4 cubes per half gallon.
