time to clean the primaries
oh, and just like that? It’s bottling Day. MEAD 2012.
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…
Mead will be racked.
This is a headsup that I will be racking a HUGE amount of mead coming up this weekend. Stay tuned for some fun pictures and possibly buzzed blogging! What are you brewing right now?
