    Default Worlds smallest

    Active carboy. It contains just over 9 ounces of black currant, 2 tablespoons of brown sugar, a pinch of Lalvin 1118 (happened to be an open packet I had), and a pinch of nutrient.


    I really need to start reading a book or something.

    Very nice. Like when I made a starter with honey, forgot about it, and then just drank it two weeks later ...

    Default Half split bottles.

    I always make extra mead to compensate for racking losses. I have never used anything that small as a primary fermenter, but when I rack to the secondary and have a small amount left over, I use the smallest bottle I can find that will hold the excess.

    I have used half-splits which holds 187 ml or 6.3 fluid ounces, with bungs specifically designed to fit bottle necks (No.2 drilled stopper).

    I also use 12 oz. beer bottles, 375 ml splits (12.7 oz.), 16 oz. swing-top bottles, 24 oz. PET bottles, 1/2 gallon, 3 liter, and 4 liter. I still need to get a couple of 1 liter glass bottles.
    Age improves with mead, even more than mead improves with age.

    No, no, I'm going all the way, Going to the store and get another quart of milk in a glass jug, a small one serving wine bottle, and a 1/4 inch piece of tubing. We're gonna rack 'em the proper way!

    Oh yeah, the cider has pooped out, and I'm considering dumping it. I put that blasted black currant crap I had left over from another experiment. I'm going to re-start it as another mini-JAOM. Joe would be proud.
