thank you again guys, it seems to have cleared pretty well on its own after 3 weeks.

i got a packet of kieselsol and chitosan each intended for a ~5/6gal recipe.

any thoughts on using these? i want a very clear mead, but don't necessarily want to strip aroma or flavour since i used a very nice honey (raw thistle honey - tastes incredibly good, even compared to samples of blueberry and buckwheat honey i bought).

planning to use these clearing agents in primary, move to secondary and give it a taste at that time, decide if i need to add acid or not.

That's what DualFine and Super-Kleer are.  At one point I used them all the time.  I would normally space them apart by about 24 hours.  No flavor impact issues that I ever noticed.  I only stopped using that method because I started kegging and found that I liked refrigeration better.  A couple months at refrigerator temp will drop out just about any particles that are going to drop.
