yeah, exactly, would need to drill a hole and bung it.... not sure where to get that bung, I bet the home brew shop might have it.

So Yunus and Jezter are getting freaky with the mead. WOW!

Must have been the aftereffects of my mead they sampled at chez Claphamsa.

I'll make sure I keep some of my last semi-dry batch then, as my last few batches turned out too dry and 15+% ABV.

No more than 12 lbs honey per mead from now on :(

I have two fermenters I have made myself out of food grade buckets. I just drill a 1 inch hole in the lid and use a #6 bung, you could even save a little and use a smaller bung and hole. Today I'm turning a gallon of generic concord wine into a fermenter doing the same thing. I even made a mead in the 1 quart plastic container my honey came in, it had some left in the bottom so I added some corn sugar to it and funny enough it tastes like most commercial mead I have had. I can't believe it came out so nice with so little honey and an equal amount of corn sugar.
