I've been reading this forum for a while and gone from a guy who had never brewed anything to someone who is eager to brew some decent mead.
Have made a couple of tries without proper reading and preparation, but the results were drinkable (except for one which got very bitter because of lemon pith... perhaps time will fix it, or i'll make it extra sweet to mask the bitterness).
The point is: To brew these poor guys I used olive jars of around 0.8 gallons, giving me a final volume of no more than 2 liters each... That's not nice... Problem is, I got addicted to this damn hobby so I wanna buy some carboys
They're not easy to find in Brazil where I live but I found these, which are rated as 34L (~9 gallons)
My question is, will the format interfere somehow? Is the drop-shaped one more prone to cause problems with krausen getting into the airlock?
Which one would you choose?
