    Airlock / De-gas question

    So I plan on racking my mead into secondary in a few weeks and then bulk aging. My question i guess is the same for mead as it is my wines that are currently bulk aging. I want to get all the gas out so when i bottle there is no fizz. Ive heard 6 months to a year in the carboy should do this...

    Add water after fermentation?

    Kolsch Yeast Question

    Ok So I bought AHS Texas Orange Kolsch kit without the yeast since I knew it would arrive here in sunny FL hot as hell. I picked up a pack of WYEAST 2656 KOLSCH this morning and I wanted to know. Is this a lager yeast? If so Im guessing I should ferment between 50-60 and then cold condition...
