Once they arrived it will be time to rack mead onto buckwheat honey and vanilla beans. I've got this divided into two primary buckets, apx. 3 galls. each. Should I go ahead and combine these into one 5 gal. jug with airlock when I rack this onto the beans? I made 6 gal. to end up with 5 finished. I hope the beans arrived by the weekend. I've been such a lazy brewer lately !
