Default Bottling time!

Should I add So2 at bottling? I added 30ppm in mid April. I started this batch last August, racked in February. It has cleared to a brilliant amber gold.

I wouldn't add more unless you're planning to keep it for several years. Otherwise it should be fine for the next 2-3 years.

Yup. I agree with summersolstice. Mead is typically more resistant to damage from oxidation than wines are, so rigorous dosing with sulfites in an attempt to retard oxidation isn't necessary.
