I hit a batch of mead with Sparkolloid to clear it, after a couple days I tasted it and it seemed a touch gassy so I put my vacuum pump on it. Lemme tell ya....I've never seen globs of lees soar through mead so quickly.

Now everyone knows why you degas wines after they have been racked, and not before.
