I do not mind ageing my meads, but I do mind the real estate they take up.

What is a good general purpose yeast to use with mead, with quick, clean, and has full flocculation?

Basicly Im looking to cut down the carboy time for future meads. I want to bottle/cellar them earlier.

I've found that cote de blanc gives me a drinkable, clear mead in about 6 months. That said, my meads are quite sweet and could hide some of the things that drier meads would not.

I had Lavalin EC-1118 champagne yeast clear in a total of 8 weeks. pretty dry but not crazy - it's what I like, but a lot of people on this site seem to be going for sweet or medium. - I have ready good things about d-47 and plan to use it on a wildflower, but haven't tried it yet.
