Changed a couple of air locks

Changed a couple of air locks and punched the shit out of that fruit. Be careful how much you agitate it. It only took a couple of swirls before the mead was ready to escape the 6.5 gallon carboys. And luckily Rich's bucket was able to keep it's lid on and not expose itself to the other young worts in the room

Were going to need as many

Were going to need as many glass carboys as we can get for this.  Can everyone invloved in this please try and gather at least 1 up label what its for and leave on carboy rack.  

Ive racked a few to see how it would go.  And alot of fruit gunk gets left at the bottom of each but we whould still be able to fill the barrel.

Please post here if you have one to use.

The only two I have are in

The only two I have are in use at the moment unfortunately.  Maybe this would be a good time to go through the carboys on the rack and comandeer any ones that have been abandoned.

Rich, that's a great idea.

Rich, that's a great idea.  We can utilize all the unlabeled ones. It probably won't be enough, but there are at least five or six.

Ok i forgot to update you all

Ok i forgot to update you all on this barrel.  About a month ago i took out 5 gallons to fit in all the black and raspberries.  To that portion i put a bunch of coconuts, I'll eventually bottle it up and split the bottles to everyone.  

Withthe rest i added in the berries and it is done how quickly can everyone get kegs there to put theirs into.  Fair warning portions are probably going to be small on this due to all the fruit

I have a plastic 6.5 gallon carboy you could use for a week or two, Jeff. I also have a keg, but I won't have time to clean and get it to the brewhouse till monday. Will that work?  Also, when will those car it's for the mead be free?  Is that what we'll be putting into this barrel?
