Default Aging in???


I am aging in a better bottle. Since we're on the subject I have around 1/2" of air space below the neck. The air space does not even come half way to the side of the carboy. Is that OK?

Ya ya sorry for the typo you try doing all your typing on a blackberry with 3hr sleep working midnights and see how it works out for you! Lmao. Are you guys just corking your carboys for long ageing or leaving the airlock in it?

I have an airlock. I'm just make sure it hasn't tried out time to time.

Default Help.!.!.!.!.


Still trying to figure out if I have too much air in the "better bottle" with an "air lock for bulk aging" that may or may not be o.k. because it "tastes like rocket fuel."

I have only made mead once so far but that is what it was like until it aged. I would think as long as the bottle is sealed good you should be fine

That should be ok. Some people claim that better bottles are bad for bulk aging. I have been letting mine sit for 10 months in a glass carboy with an airlock. If it is hot then you might get a glass carboy and rack over to it. Plan on aging it for a year before you think about bottling. If you do rack it over to a glass carboy be sure to top the carboy off with water till you reach the neck.
