I also got 1.130 OG. I temperature corrected mine and it was 1.134, close enough. I've had this going for 9 days and the airlock is STILL bubbling once every 10 seconds, and I can see activity in it as well.
This was my first mead, and first time using bread yeast to ferment a drink. I thought it was awesome the bread yeast started working within 10 minutes of dumping it into the 1 gallon glass "jug".
Can't wait for this one! How should I bottle this? I'm not sure I want bottle bombs, and I think I want to slightly carbonate this. Since it's only 1 gallon, I was thinking of trying to bottle it in 6 or 8 oz bottles, if I can find them. Do I want to use beer bottle caps, or corks? Should I use PET bottles so they don't explode violently should they burst? So many questions!
