First off I want to say this is a great forum to gather knowledge. Thanks.

I have been making wine for a few years now and just learned about Mead. I started my first Cyser batch 4 days ago in a 5 gallon bucket. Do I wait 7 days like wine prior to moving over to a 5 gallon carboy? Also I have read many posts and watched lots of videos and I do not see anyone degassing. Is this not necessary with Mead?

Any suggestions would be appreciated.
