No problem whatsoever. Usual sanitation procedures apply. Cheers!

It should work fine for those other things, though for the long fermentation/aging periods involved with mead, cider and wine (sometimes 12 months +) it would better to get an additional glass 3-6 gallon carboy with a stopper and airlock so they don't tie up your primary fermenting bucket.
