I have some mead that's been sitting around for about 6 months now- need to bottle it.  I have no idea what I'm doing- does any one want to come over and bottle this stuff for me????
 :roll:

Really though, can I use bottle caps for the wine bottles or do I need (or should I) cork them?
 :beer:

It depends on the type of bottle.  If they're real wine bottles (750ml) you probably can't cap them.  The easiest way would be to get some plastic corks and cork them.

I would think that 6 months of aging was a good amount.  I volunteer Brad to go over and help you bottle. :)

Bott,e, drink, drink, bottle.  Both sound like fun. See my Viking personality.  Is the work already done? How did I miss this post back in July?? :?
