Unfortunately there is a lot of "mis-information" out there - old recipes, old books, old methods.
The good news is that there are a few sources of information that will help you learn mead making methods that produce consistent results: Ken Schramm's book, Oskaar (on GotMead), and our FAQs. Each of these sources promote the newer methods, but in a somewhat different manner.
The FAQs (posted here on HBT, and on my website) were structured to answer the questions I frequently answered as a forum moderator elsewhere.
Your question is but one of them...
After reading the FAQ feel free to ask any follow-up questions.
