My dry mead is sitting happily in its smaller secondary carboy, with its little brother, a half-gallon bottle with an airlock.
The other carboy has 5.5 gallons of a PM version of Revvy's Vienna Lager wort sitting in it, chilling down to 45 degrees and waiting for the starter to finish crashing so I can decant and pitch. I'm not very happy with the 18-24 hour wait between the end of the boil and pitching, but I don't have much choice at this point.
It wasn't even down to pitching temperature by this morning, anyway, so even had I had time to pitch, I would have wanted to wait a bit longer anyway. Hopefully my sanitation was good. It's cold enough that between the careful sanitizing and it's being almost refrigerated anyway, I think I should be ok.
