I started a one gallon batch of mead last night. It is my first time, woke up this morning to look at it pictures to show, is something wrong with it? Do I need to fix it? How do I fix it? What went wrong if anything?
You could take off the airlock and bung, and cover the opening with a clean paper towel or sanitized piece of close, and hold that on with a rubberband. Then, when fermentation slows, put the airlock set up back on. You definitely do NOT need an airlock right now!
