This is my second time making mead, and for the occasion I decided to try making some blueberry mead. I used:
13lbs of honey, a little less that 7lbs of mashed blueberries, and 2 packets of D-47.
I pitched the yeast about 11 hours ago and its fermenting nicely. The only problem is that I filled the carboy too much and there is leakage on the top. (I am using a piece of cloth instead of an airlock as stated by the original instructions)
Well I'm afraid I'll be losing a lot of mead and I know its all my fault because I was fully aware of what I was getting myself into. The question is, should I leave in the 5 gallon carboy or should I keg up a beer I have in a 6.5 gallon carboy, clean that and sanitize it, and then rack the blueberry into that 6.5 gallon carboy?
Any input is appreciated!
