also as the gas escapes the airlock through the water it forms lots of bubbles on the top and
is overflowing slowly as the gasses seem to be blowing rasberries at the top making lots of

i thought so. it seams the yeast/nutrient i used is slow acting as it is taking longer to start

your mead doesnt need saving. i read you need to rack it once the bubbling is at 1 every 30
seconds. so you are fine just let it sit in the new demijohn for a while to clarify and finish
