Update

I hadn't considered bottling in beer bottles. Do you suppose crown caps or swing-tops would keep the mead/wine as well as a cork?

I just took a gravity reading 10 days into fermentation (SG =...

How do I know my serving pressure?

I'm posting in the Beginners' forum instead of Bottling/Kegging because I get the impression that this is a newbie question, based on a cursory search there.
