Default First batch of mead.

Hello all to all on the forum. Tonight I just started my first mead, I used;
(5 gallon batch)
15 pounds of Clover honey
~4gallons of spring water
2 pakets of Lalvin 71B-1122(rehydrated)
2 TBS Yeast nutrient
2 TBS Yeast energizer

I am now awaiting signs of airlock activity. I am fermenting in a 6.5 gallon bucket. Does anyone have any recomendations for me? My plan is to keep it in the bucket for around two weeks and the rack to my 5 gallon carboy for the remainder until clear. I can't wait to see if this will all work. I am hoping my yeast was viable.

Thanks, Tim
