I posted this in rec.crafts.meadmaking, but no takers. Just seeing if anyone on the wine group might have any ideas.
A couple of years ago I created a Raspberry Melomel. It tasted OK at first, but as I tried it over the course of months and months the taste seemed to be getting better. I keep it bottled in a box in a closet where it stays cool and dark. Today (about 2 years after creation) I went and pulled a few bottles to put in the fridge and I noticed something I had not noticed on any of the subsequent bottles. On the inside of the bottle, just at the top of the fluid level, there is what appears to be a white ring. I say it appears to be white. The bottles are green and through the green bottles it looks like what I would think would be white while looking through green. :)
Any idea what this may be ? An infection just now showing its ugly face ? They don't taste bad.
