Here is an interesting variation on an airlock created by Nimrod. He uses a ball to seal off the hole in the top of the bucket. This is an interesting way to do it and he is going to keep us updated on how it works. The one downfall of this, he points out, is that you don't see any bubbling.

lots of mead in the mead room

This is what I has made this year. The one on the left and the one in the front is apple wine and cider. The one in the middle is sweet mead and the little one is apple mead and the one in the back on the right side is a dry mead. The bucket and the one the left is fruit wine. One is bolied fruit juice and the other(the one in the bucket) is exactly the same fruit but it has been frozen and the ferment is with whole fruit  this is made to test  the flavor difference. Mjød is the Danish name for mead and it has been brewed here in denmak for many years. Mead was the preferred drink of the vikings whom were Living her in denmark since about 1000 BC. Filipendula rubra (mead wort) is often used to give bitter taste as Contrast to the sweetness of the honey most in the old days and later hops was used, but nowadays it is almost forgotten because it is mistaken for wine or beer so the taste is  not what people expect. I think it is a shame because it is a very good drink if it is properly made.
