comment Lots of sanitizer sucked up into my mead, wondering if it's still safe to consume?
If I'm reading the question correctly, the sanitizer was sucked up into a 1 gal batch of mead, not a 5 gal batch of beer (there were multiple tubes going into the same sanitizer). 1 quart into 1 gal will probably be noticeable...

Update: Proceeded as planned, using some of @mdma's advice. Turns out that Mythbusters was right: you CAN polish a turd! I probably won't be winning any awards for this one, but the "fixed" version actually turned out pretty good.

I'm now very familiar with the effects of molasses :)

Fun facts about this batch - it also clogged the airlock and blew the lid off the fermenting bucket. Now I know what a blow-off hose is for.
