I really hope this is a dumb question, but better safe than sorry.
I've been home brewing for a couple of years, and am thinking of trying my hand at mead. I have a bunch of plastic fermenters, and one glass big mouth.
So onto the stupid question. Is there any problem starting a 5-gallon kit in a bucket, then racking to the glass for aging once the time comes?
It just seems odd that every thing I see on mead shows it in glass carboys. I'm hoping it's just because mead is so damn photogenic..
