Racking to the Big Jug

Racking to the Big Jug

The vessels that should be bubbling continue to bubble. The jugs that shouldn’t be bubbling aren’t. Overall, things are as they should be.

I did check the specific gravity on my mead, now down to 1.034. I decided to go ahead and rack it to a 5G carboy. Only added maybe half a cup of water (if that) to top up.  Air-locked, and that’s a night. Unfortunately, not really any extra to taste-test. But the smell is quite lovely – honey fragrant; a definite sweetness.

So now everything is out of primary and either into secondary or on its way to the bottle (after a suitable rest to make sure nothing “bad” is happening). Now we wait.

And now to get my daughter into bed…
