1. Rehydrate yeast.
See packet instructions - 1/2 cup warm water.
Watch for a few little bubbles to form.
2. pour juice in to the cleaned and sanitized 1 gallon jug airrating as you go
Only at the beginning introducing oxygen is a good thing from now on should be avoided.
3. pitch yeast - pour it in the juice gently shake to mix.
4. plug the jog with the cleaned and sanitized bung and filled airlock.
You can use water in the air lock but I prefer to use vodka as it prevents growth of unwanted little beasties.Read more ›

I use a 1-gallon wine bottle and and an air lock, and in about a month I've got the starts to some great mead. Bread yeast doesn't work as well, and some other brands of wine or champagne yeast don't tolerate the alcohol content as well.
I store the extra packets in the freezer and they're fresh and ready when I start a new batch.
With wines, watch your SG because this yeast will continue producing alcohol up to 18%--my apple honey wine is about 17% and initially it was like rocket fuel. After a month in the bottle, it's beginning to mellow, but it'll take a good 6 months to smooth out. I shouldn't have added that quart of honey, but I was living dangerously...
