Peach Mead 3 (Bucket Modification and Bubbling)

After 24 hours from when the yeast first went in, I had to put in the next ¼ of yeast nutrient and degas the mead with a hand drill and a paint mixer. The yeast got a little carried away, and the mixture kept foaming over the bucket even with the lid on, so we had to improvise. With a Dremel handy, my roommate cut and polished a hole in the top of the paint bucket lid such that we could install our bung and airlock, preventing further spillage of the mead.
