Got the first batch brewing!

Mixed the must and pitched the Flieschmann's yeast a few hours ago, and it's already bubbling away! This is the 'cheap store bought stuff' recipe for a traditional. I bought a 5 gal bucket and a couple 1gal jugs at Austin Homebrew Supply today, figuring I'll start on a 5 gal batch of raspberry melomel soon... then checked how much I'll have to spend for the fruit and honey....

... now I'm thinking I might get a few more 1gal bottles and try some smaller batches to test out some recipes I might like. Will be easier on the wallet, and I'll probably be better able to make my $ into good mead.
