I hear what you're saying, and I might go back to the electric. I just honestly had a really hard time controlling the massive amount of bubbles from the degassing and aeration combined.

Maybe I'll go manual for degassing, then electric for aeration. Just so much less of a hassle not dealing with the electric. I'm so lazy...

Well ya fat bloke, I continue following your advice, and I can't say I'm disappointed. I've mastered the technique of using my "electric whisk". Definitely works better, as you know.

Another question I have: should I be noticing any distinct smells while degassing? I don't want to call it "sulphur-like", but I can't put my finger on what it is exactly.

Also: Just noticed I titled this thread "fist mead" instead of "first". Hahaha, so silly.
