And it's done! I've bottled the mead. I just racked it over to my ale pail, which is a plastic bucket with a spigot, allowing me to tap the mead directly into bottles. Attached are some pictures of the final bits. I almost forgot to take any pics, but at least remembered when there were still a few bottles left. Again, to be historically correct, I would've put it right into a cask and drank straight from it, but those are costly. So instead I put it into my bottling bucket, allowed it to sit for an hour to get the last of the floc out, and then bottled and capped it. From the final gravity reading, it looks like it's going to have an ABV of around 10.75%. ;DLet me know if you have any questions!
