Dude, Northern Brewer does carry the K1V. Have a look at this: http://www.northernbrewer.com/winema...-k1-v1116.html

They've now split their catalog into Beer and Wine subsections (a la More Beer/More Wine), so you have to look on both sides. Given that your temperature can swing while the mead is still fermenting (we have similar problems on the Colorado Front Range), you'll do much better with K1V than you will with EC-1118 if the temperature spikes early in the ferment.

I believe that every organism evolves to meet its living condition so ... will a yeast adapt to its environment? i think yes. i will still wait for the K1V-1116 but i am going to keep a sample of my cinn/ginger yeast in case it turns out really f**kin good

neway i shooting for a 3 gallon batch 2 lbs berry and 10 lbs honey is that gonna be enough? K1V is also a very agressive yeast and will probably eat it all ... how much honey for a sweet mead?
