Bottle day

After many months of "bulk aging" in the carboy, I finally got around to bottling some of the maple mead.  Half of the batch just got racked into a new carboy with some Potassium Metabisulphite and Potassium Sorbate and will sit for a few days before I try re-sweetening it with some additional maple syrup. The grocery store had maple syrup in handy flask shaped bottles with Grolsch style lids, so naturally I had to get one of those. Come festival season that flask might come in handy. :)

I have to start a new batch of something like the "Sunshine in a Bottle" batch that won 3 Rivers Fest's competition for my brother-in-law's wedding next summer.
