    Potassium metabisulfite is a great addition at that point- but it is NOT a stabilizer! It's an
    antioxidant/preservative.In order to stabilize, the mead must be clear, no longer dropping any
    lees at al...

    Quick update: I made a honey/water mixture that ended up being about 200ml of honey, just under
    actually, and 600ml of water. Not all of the mixture went in. Probably about 200ml was left
    behind. The ...

    K1-1116 can go higher than it has so far. This mead should finish at .990. That's fine, and you
    can backsweeten later on. Or, you can do incremental feeding. How that works is that you keep
    adding hon...

    ...if you don't want to sweeten your mead, make a 1.005 honey/water solution and top up with
    that. since the sugar concentration is the same as the mead, you'll have no effect on
    sweetness. but like ...

    ...the problem arises in secondary, where there is little to (eventually) no CO2 being
    released. so you want to minimize how much O2 is in there, and how much surface area is exposed
    to that O2.That h...

    Evening! I'm a first time mead maker, and am about half through my first 5 gallon batch.
    Fermentation started in April, and finished by the beginning of May. It was racked off into a
    carboy, and has c...

    Just added Dragon fruit to secondary. Hopefully me trying to get enough flavour wont mean its
    to dark.The rewarewa mead I put in seems strong. never tried mead before but I assumed honey
    flavour would...

    To specify, this is after I've done my first racking and am ready to rack that off into another
    new carboy. I just want to be sure I don't allow the lees to sit for too long.

    Righteous, thanks! If you consider an average of 13-20 bubbles a minute, active fermentation.
    Then, I will leave it. But if that's laggin' I'll add in some extra yeast. Is there a specific
    time when I...

    ...Sweet or dry ? Is about honey/sugar levels, fermentation techniques and finishing
    processes.The last one you mention is good for traditionals and cysers. Its known to produce
    early drinking brews a...
