I think I found my next mead recipe. I might have to make a batch this weekend. I need to start buying more buckets and car boys to make more beer! I have 2 meads in plastic gallon water jugs!

I don't know if anyone still reading this thread is still having a question about stopping fermentation, but just in case, here is my understanding: you can cold crash it in the fridge, which will stun the yeast (not kill it, just make it temporarily inactive) and lees fall out. In order to stabilize the mead, you are not stopping fermentation on a dime; adding the campden tablets AND the potassium sorbate does not kill the yeast, it basically neuters the existing yeast so that it cannot continue to reproduce. Unless it ferments dry, you will still have some fermentation going for a few days until all of the existing yeast dies out.

Started a batch of this on sunday but had only 45 ounces of the juice
because the welches is too sweet for my taste, I assume it should.still turn out ok since I can adjust more during the backsweetening

Just made a batch of this, hoping it turns out pretty tasty. Had to leave out the 1 oz of buckwheat honey since I couldn't find any local.

So i'm planning to make a 1 gallon batch of this and I'm seeing that most or all of the batches that's been posted hasn't been topped up? There's quite a bit of space there. What's the deal?

I topped one of mine of, then it began to be active again. My other one I left alone. You can do it no problem.

Well yeah I didn't think extra water would inhibit fermentation, just wondering about its effects on flavor/strength of the mead

The last 2 batches i did i topped off with additional juice. They are both still fermenting, so I have yet to see the results.
