    Ok, but YOU'RE the one who posted, "Does this look infected?", not me! And I can tell you that
    in these many, many years, I've never once had lacto, flowers of wine, mold, acetero bacter,
    cork taint, ...

    CO2 will only bubble out when the pressure is greater inside the chamber than outside. What is
    making the CO2 bubble out..more CO2 from the mead, of course (either from residual yeast
    fermentation and...

    I would assume (though I dont know for sure), that the issue is that once you have racked to
    secondary and there is no more fermentation, there is no more CO2 being produced, so what ever
    O2 was in th...

    Yup! I read through many posts the forum...lot's of "do this to prevent oxidation", but no
    substantiation behind it. I suspect this is something grandfathered in from barrel
    aging/conditioning, where ...

    Oh, just clarify, I'm speaking specifically of a non-permeable glass carboy with a fermentation
    lock; not a gas permeable vessel such as a plastic bucket or oak barrel. :)

    Well, it's your mead. Oxidation is very real, as is a chance of infection. Headspace in the
    fermenter is a HUGE risk. If you chose to ignore that risk, it's up to you. But no one will
    tell you that it...

    Unless you have some headspace..............................Co2 does protect to a degree. But
    it's not like it stays in there forever. Gasses will seek equilibrium. Co2 will bubble out of
    the airlock....

    Make sure the mead is topped off! I can't tell in that picture but you do NOT want any
    headspace at all. If you've got headspace, you could easily allow some mold or something to
    take hold. You want t...

    The only thing that made me ? is the use of the sweet mead yeast. They're finnicky and IMO a
    total PITA to use. People often grab them as it says "mead" in the title/name. There's plenty
    of yeasts tha...

    No, I'm not showing a body part here :p...I've been making beer for years now. My wife decided
    that she wanted to make some mead, and I let her own the process. When it came to sanitation,
    she did som...
