Well if you want to be leaning more towards beer you'll want to make it a hopped hydromel. I'm surprised no one mentioned this.

Sorry to say, but the recipe's section is only for tried recipes, not experimental ongoing projects or theoretical advances, or anything like that.

I'd say add some extra energizer and nutrient, it might just as well get lower.

I wonder what caused those unfermentable compounds. For that matter, were they? Or just a lot harder to ferment? Makes ya think..

I don't think that's accurate. Considering that honey greatly differs in sugar-water ratio, it is safe to say that either going by weight or fluid amount will be fairly inaccurate, unless you already...

Well, it's hard to go off amounts. If you have a hydrometer make the OG out to 1.133. That'll give you at least 18% ABV (which is 1118's tolerance) and dry. (if you want it at 20% you could chance it...

K1V-1116 seems to emit a better taste profile than EC-1118, although because of EC-1118's comparatively neutral taste profile, it has a wider appeal. 71b-1122 is well renowned for good taste compared...

PH should be at least 7.0 for any mead, or else it will seldom go anywhere. It may be a strange anomoly, that your PH was so low, but it must be fixed. This is the most viable answer at this point...

According to the ABV calculator at Brewers Friend, this should ferment out at least 16%, and maybe up to 18% or more, depending on how far Wyeast Dry Mead will go.

Yeah, I am 99% sure they will. I'm pretty sure the flavours are of the norm, but what was your honey and water ratios, and SG readings?

Common practice is, rack when A: clear, and B: when you check every day for signs of fermenting for two weeks. Once both are checked off you're good to rack. Though, many do it differently..
