Obviously, unless you used some enzymes, you just added starchy mess to your mead. You might bet a little flavor but I'm guessing you realize there will not be much in the way of fermentables.

What about oxygen scavenging caps and waxed bottles?
So, it sounds like a number of things. You regulator is off and probably your lines are either not long enough or the ID is too large diameter.
I have a few regulators whose gauges are wonky. All it takes is one tip over. Some have come from the manufacturer screwy. What ID is you line? How long a line are you using?
I was going to ask the same thing but also I didn't see if the OP checked the Qd's (Disconnects). I just went through something similar (air in line) and found a bad QD was the culprit, perhaps the disconnect is faulty or partially plugged up. It could also be that the small pin inside is damaged and not fully depressing the poppit.
I have several and really like them. They extremely easy to clean. I'm a little antsy about the spigot but so far no probs. planning on buying some rubber stoppers to fix that issue.Major, do you have several Speidel fermenters or Braumeisters? I do know a pro brewer to be who just ordered a 7 barrel Braumeister brewhouse.
I rigged up a thermowell for one but I stopped using it. Now, instead, I attach the thermo probe to the side of the fermentor under a layer of paper towels for insulation and duct tape. Temp seems to be close enough.
Any one else remember when SN was twist off caps?
