Posted in thread: Mold in airlock on 07-12-2014 at 02:59 PM
I just moved a carboy of mead to the front of the counter so it has time to settle before I
rack it and I noticed that there is mold IN the airlock. I don't see any mold in the carboy but
I don't know...

Looks great. I am actually surprised at how little color there is. I thought you would have had

I just degassed and added the kmeta and sorbate to my Skeeter Pee. I didn't add Sparkolloid

I was reall...

put the airlock on ...

I really want to make Skeeter Pee but I only have a 7 gallon fermenting bucket and a 6 gallon
carboy. Can I make a half batch (2.5) gallons in a 6 gallon carboy without worrying about
oxidation? To pr...

OK, I popped a regular bottle open and it's definitely flat. It's delicious, but flat. I
