To answer your question...you can ferment in any container.

Sure, some are better than others. Some are not so good and the results will be shattered all over the place.

Live and learn...but not here until you're 21 (Stateside), 16 in Europe, except 12 in Denmark...

Sure, but make sure the lid is on tight so nothing bad gets in.*

Sure, if you want your mead to taste like tomato... Make sure you shake for 5 minutes every hour

You cen also use sem spellin' clesses...

Hmmm...

Normally, tomato juice WOULD get rid of a foul smell, so the V8 should take care of that for you...

Otherwise, as I've said on (numerous) other threads, stick it in a closet with a towel under the door, like you do when you're doing... other things, that make an unpleasant/incriminating odor...


(O my god... what am I doing...this is what they got Socrates for...)

No there's no way to get rid of the smell... your hooch will not only taste like tomatoes and total crud but your mom will catch you and it'll start a fight and we'll get in trouble for helping you...

In other words your Ghetto Juice will not only smell but also taste like crap, i also heard that if you throw in a couple fruit snacks and maybe some HiC or a Capri Sun... Don't forget the moldy bread in a sock.... Oh and if you are worried about fermenters and don't care about taste or smell try using a toilet, my friend T-Bone in prison says it works good.

Bleach Jug size should work... Hey and you don't have to sanitize it either, though that probably doesn't matter since you were probably going to use bread yeast or maybe some from your sister's laundry...



Get a clue kid... you need about 5 more years before you can brew legally... though by the looks of your spelling i'd say you're too stupid to care...
