    Raspberry Mead

From the secondary rack, How long do i wait to rerack and bottle? I am assuming after all bubbling has ceased? 2. I want to make this now (01 May) and not drink it till around thanksgiving or christmas. I understand that meads taste particularly better when they age. Is this a good ammount of time to let sit and if so can i refrigerate while i wait?

Any help you can throw my way will be greatly appreciated.Thanks,John
