i just made my first JOA mead. I followed the directions perfectly. I used red star bread yeast instead of the other kind tho. But i pitched the yeast when the must was at room temp, put an airlock on my 1 gallon glass carboy, and put it under my kitchen sink. I check it 1 hour later and i get 1 blip per minute!! isn't it supposed to be crazy the first few days? I waited 2 more hours and it is 1 blip every 50 secs. Is this normal? And also the raisins and the cinnamon stick are at the bottom, is that ok?
