Mead rack, part 1
Racking the mead today. Had to start with sanitation.
I have a 20 gallon primary fermenter. I started the sani this morning around 10.
I’ll be rinsing and treading with onestep next. After that, I’ll feed the kids dinner, get them situated in a movie and Then oh man. Pics time.
The fermentation is complete, so I’ll be racking through filter paper. I’m not quite ready to bottle so I’ll be filtering, pooling the two meads from the secondary fermenters into the big primary tank, cleaning the secondary fermenters, and finally diluting, back into the sanitized secondary tanks.
Big job, but the Mrs is gone for the weekend and I am bored. I even know what my dilution ratio is…
