Thanks, it's good to know I'm on the right track.
Machalel: Yep, that's exactly the type of bottle I have on hand. My son is US Air Force in Germany and he sent me a few boxes of his empties.
Insomniac: I used camden tabs with my first couple of batches of cider (my wife's new favorite drink
) and I have two words--Head Ache! The last couple of batches have been made without it and there's no problem. So, with that in mind, I'm leery of using of using it. Sorbate though I have no problems with. Is it really needed with mead if the FG is stable? I have more experience brewing beer than making mead so just asking. And if it's not totally still and has a little residual carbonation, that's ok with me.
I guess I just need to borrow a corker from a friend at work and get busy.
