where can i buy one, or is there a webpage on how to make them?
As Oskaar suggested in a post to another person starting out, it would be a good idea to first invest in a book like Ken Schramm's "Compleat MeadMaker" . I am certain you will enjoy it immensely and find it will save you a lot of time and money in the long run. He will give you suggestions on putting together your own kit. For example if you chose a Cyser for your first mead you can buy your apple juice or cider in 1 gallon jugs and use them for a carboy. You can purchase airlocks for under a dollar. His books will give you the basics to be able to ask the right questions or use your own imagination to experiment or improvise without creating a disaster. Best of Luck in your new hobby. You will find all the meadmakers here are more than willing to assist in anyway they can.another question for Jmattioli, are the kit's they sell worth it?
im still very new to all of this.
You didn't say if they were glass or plastic. ??? That's pretty important for that price. Glass is definitely worth the drive for quanitity.Lagerman64 said:Hate do beat a dead horse (any idea where that term came from?), but if you're in New York State (or don't mind driving), we scored a big haul from a foreclosure auction. I have 100+ (5 gallon) carboys we can spare @ cost (around 2 or 3 dollars a piece). Your welcome to them, sorry we don't deliver, but I'm sure something could be worked out (if need be).
