I've not degassed either of my meads, but I think I'll pick this up and give it a shot.
Any idea how long per gallon to leave it running?
You will be able to see when it is done, only small bubbles rising at the rate of 1-2 per 2-3 seconds.
As far as how long it takes? Depends how long the mead has been sitting, the pom mead I did took about 5 minutes total, i alternate off and on because you will notice when you stop pushing the butting bubbles are still coming to the top. The pom mead was already 5 months old. You will be shocked at how much CO2 you can pull out of a young batch.
You can pick this up at Safeway or Frys. Basically any grocery store. Retail is $11.00 and I got mine on sale for $5.47. I never degassed before and didn't mind the hint of sparkling in the final product. I figure for a few bucks you can't go wrong.
