I just started my first 2 gallon batch of mead.Its been in the fermenting bucket for 1 day. My plan is to stir for 3 days add addittional nutrients then split off 1 gallon to a glass jug for sweet mead and another gallon to glass jug and add fruit juice after a week. My concern was starting them in the glass jugs is the fermentation would be too vigorous and I would get blow off.
Any advice on this would be appreciated, does the timing seem ok. Should I leave in the fermenting bucket for full primary and add fruit juice to secondary in the glass jug? If I do this ,will there be enough active yeast to convert the juice sugar in secondary.
