Anything else?

So this is my first mead I've ever brewed, strictly beer before, and I'm wondering if there is anything left to take into account before bottling. It's done fermenting and is just sitting in a glass...

Upgrading

So I've decided to build my own mash tun, only problem is the only parts at the local hardware store were either galvanized or made of brass. I'm not 100% sure, but I was thinking these might be no...

Secondary question

First time making mead so I had a question. How long should it sit on fruit (plums)? I just racked it into a 6 gallon glass carboy and want to get a good amount of flavor from it. Thanks

Milk Stout slowed fermentation

I had a milk stout fermenting (forgot to get OG) nicely for a few days and then all of the sudden, no more bubbles. Should I wait a week and take a reading or add some nutrient?

Really depends on the style and gravity of the beer I would think. Some beers benefit greatly from aging, others are better fresh. I remember my first brew, a failed attempt at a Belgian pale ale,...

Mead question

Never brewed mead before and got a recipe that asks for ~12lbs, however I've seen a lot of others that only use about 5. Should I just split this into two batches?
