Just use hightest's spreadsheet to figure out the relative right amount of honey - because we know that the Wyeast Sweet Mead tolerance is about 11%.
All you really need to do is pick out your batch size and amount of honey to hit 11% plus some residual sweetness (assuming you want that based on your yeast selection).
Thanks. I'm totally new to mead so I need a bit more help here... can you link to the spreadhseet? Also, will the ingredients just be water.honey.puree? I'm unclear on when to add nutrients.energized.dap etc. Is there a basic strategy you can link to?
