Mead Bottles for NHC
« on: December 09, 2016, 01:59:14 PM »

Are 187ml bottles permissible for the mead categories in the NHC?

I was a steward for the final round in Baltimore this year and saw plenty of 6oz/187ml bottles being used, but the rules posted on the NHC page state bottles must "[h]old a minimum of 10 ounces (296 ml) in volume." 

Getting ready to package up several meads I've been bulk aging, and hopefully one or two might be worth an entry.  A few were 1 gallon pilot batches, so I'd like to be able to go with the lower volume bottles.
