Hello everyone! I was just wondering if it was possible to bottle a mead in standard brown beer
bottles. 22oz size. I have a lot around, and don't have wine bottles at the moment. It would
also lower ...

So, my Raspberry mead has been in existence since last March now. It's been racked a few times,
and the last time I got almost no sediment at all out of it. Fermentation has been completely

So a while ago, I racked from a secondary on raspberries, into another carboy without
raspberries. Topped it up with some extra must, and let it sit. So after about a month and a
