Hi, and welcome to HBT.
You're right that this part of the forum is mostly about beer. But, there is a whole section dedicated to mead. Just go back up and click on the 'Homebrew forums' then scroll down until you find the mead section.
Personally I've never done one, but I do like looking around and so have seen that meads take a much longer time to ferment than beers, partially because they are deficient in nutrients unless you added those during the 1st couple days of fermentation. The experts are over there, so good luck!
