Three Gallon Carboy

There is a basic decision that you have to make if you are a beginner mead maker. That is what size batch you should make. Typically mead makers make batches in a five or six gallon glass carboy. And this is a pretty standard thing. But if you are a beginner you are no doubt thinking that fifteen to eighteen pounds of honey is quite expensive! And you are right, it is rather expensive especially if you get a high quality honey.

 

You do have the option of making a one gallon batch which is kind of nice and this will keep your honey costs down but in the end the most you will get out of it is four bottles of mead.

So, there is a common alternative that is available now - the three gallon carboy. It is a good compromise and you should be able to get a full case of mead out of it. And a three gallon carboy is less expensive than the 5. Anyhoo, amazon. com now carries three gallon carboys. Yay!
