Two years at least before that will be drinkable if so!

Sorry, Bodger, yes its mead. I went for a rosehip mead recipe.

I thought I'd just make a little in case it was rubbish,, but I didn't consider all of the space in the top of the bottle 😩 so I'm not sure what effect that will have,,,,, we'll see I guess. I'll let you all know.

Properly a spiced Mead is a metheglin  

Don't even think of bottling for six months would be my advice. Mead ferments and clears slowly. A "Great Mead" must be in the bottle for not less than eight years.
