Default Aging Mead

I'm working on my first mead and it's been sitting in a bucket for a couple months now. I can't remember for the life of me why I used the bucket instead of a carboy, but that's moot now.

Should I keep it in the bucket for it to continue aging or should I transfer it to a carboy?


It may take a real man to brew a big beer, but it takes a big man to brew a real beer.

Transfer it to a carboy and top up to as near the top as you can. You'll help to prevent oxidation.
