ok so i made my first mead today. i decided to make a semi-sweet straight mead. i'm making a 10 liter (2.5 gallons batch). my ingredients are:
3.5 kilos of honey (couldn't find any specific type so i chose one that looked good. It's wildflower honey)
A little more than a gram of yeast nutrient.
Madeira yeast (enough for 30 liters)
enough water to fill it up to 10 liters in the carboy
i boiled the water, took it off the heat poured the honey in with the nutrients and mixed it up. i poured it in the carboy with enough water to fill it up. i let it cool to 23 Celsius. so like 73 Fahrenheit. the gravity was about 1.1. i pitched the whole bottle and now it's sitting in my basement which is at a constant 21 Celcius.
So how's it sound? did i do well?
also i was wondering if i made a mistake by pitching the whole yeast thing when i was only making 10 liters.
