    Yea, next time I'm definitely taking your advice and using buckets for secondary. Much easier
    and less hassle/risk. Would have been nice to experiment with the Strawberries in primary VS.

    Added pics of racking from 1 gallon jugs to tertiary: mead has been sitting on fruit in
    secondary for a month. I tasted some a couple days ago and the fruit character is absolutely
    mouth watering. F...

    buckets I have and maybe give it a small shot of CO2 as a precaution. I'll post pics and an
    update in a cou...

    I figured buckets would have been easier, but I was (overly?) concerned about oxidation and

    siphoning?I used a big ass muslin bag for all the fruit in my Triple Berry mead. The Prickly

    it what you have on hand or is it something more technical like a larger surface area

    Here's a quick update on this Prickly Pear Mead - Just had a small sample of it tonight. So I
    realized that I messed up on my recipe. I added 5 gals of water to the honey ... instead of

    Thanks for the link, I've been checking that guy out for a while now. Just curious if you're
