This is rather my first time doing a mead. It has been a month since i put it up for fermentation. Its been locked in a relatively stable temperature and totally dark enviroment.
Today, after a full month, I opened it up to check on it and the fermenting has stopped. I have dead yeast at the bottom of the containter, and the mead is clear. But, the part that is troubling me is that along the neck i have this amber coloured residue. It looks like a very moist foam. Not bubbly but not neccisarily wrong looking. It doesnt drape down into the mead and I have no sickly smells. I've had it airlocked and used properly sanitized utenciles when brewing.
Is this normal "mead foam" or is it the sign of an infection?
