well, a friend of mine bottled a batch of mead about two weeks ago. the batch
had been in the carboy for two months after primary fermentation. he had
terminated the batch (didn't add stabilizer) and used sparkaloid to clear the
mead. after waiting the alloted two weeks, he bottled and forgot about it. last
night he pulled a bottle out to show me and we noticed sediment (like crazy)
all inside the bottle and the mead was cloudy again. i was like "uh oh. you
have renewed fermentation on your hands." we opened a bottle to see if i was
correct, and sure enough, the mead was sparkling slightly. my question is- what
do we do about this now? open the bottles and drop stabilizer in them? drink
them (hehehehehe) before they explode? we've not had any bottle bombs yet, and
i really am not looking forward to experiencing the sight firsthand.
