Any purist who tries to impose standards on something that generally has none is a control fascist who should just f*** the hell off.....

Lack of nutrients is why "show" meads are often overly sweet with off flavours.

Plus because there were no real records of mead method from its dark ages heyday, any recipe or method that claims authenticity is likely a load of bollocks.....

If you're worried about late addition, either FermaidO if you can get it locally or failing that, boiled or microwaved bread yeast.

Better to try and nourish the yeast than not and end up with a high gravity waste of time and money.......
