I am doing my first mead (well melomel sp?) from a kit from my LHBS. It starts with 10 lbs honey and then later stated this would be dry so add sugar if wanted. So what I did was get another 5lbs of honey for a total off 15 lbs. The instructions state that after 10 days the airlock should be slowed down or stopped and that is when I am supposed to add the blackberry puree, pectin enyzyme, and another package of yeast(Red Star Cote des Blancs).
Of course now it is 10 days later and the airlock is still bubbling along nicely(started the day I put the yeast in the carboy). My concern is with the extra 5 lbs of honey there is going to be more fermentation, but should I go ahead and add the Puree now along with the extra yeast package and pectin enzyme or wait a few more days.
I do not know the alcohol tolerance of this yeast and if the additional 5 lbs of honey once fermented will inhibit further fermentation of the fruit puree sugars so as to have a too sweet mead.
Suggestion would be appreciated.
