First mead Joe's Ancient Orange
I started a gallon last December in a Vintner's pail (see post from that time) and at 2 month's I syphoned it into a carboy and put a screw top on, not a cork. At that transfer, the hydrometer read that it was "wine". I tasted it, got a little lightheaded for a couple minutes. It didn't taste terrible. I am not a wine drinker...I am attempting this for a friend.
So, I am pretty sure the screw on for carboy was not a good idea but too late now.
It has been in a dark cabinet since then, never opened. I see sediment on the bottom. Can I syphon clear liquid one more time to wine bottles and cork, or is this too much oxygen introduction?
My original plan was to give the wine attempt to my friend for her birthday later this month. Thanks for any help.
