All in all, it sounds good. Good luck.
+2 Maybe I'm just a purist but, to me, sugar doesn't have any place in mead. If I don't have enough honey to make 5 gallons, I make 3.
When I first began making mead I too went on the high side of OG on my meads. As I started making a few more batches, I backed off. High gravity meads really take a long time to fully age - like 2-3 years at least, and likely even more. Now I'll do a higher gravity mead every 4th batch or so that I can put back. For most meads I try to stay at about 1.090.
As Gin said, though - good luck and happy mead making!
