Is two packs of wyeast to much for six gallons? I only used one packet for my mixed berry mead. What is "Montepulciano red wine juice"? Do you get that at a brew shop? Is it a base for red wine or just a must/juice? Thanks for the ideas!

I used 2 paks becouse the Wine juice was 1.060 and I added 10lbs of honey.
Montepulciano is a Itaian Red wine.

I have a local wine juice store that presses the grapes. In the fall all the grapes from Italy and California come in and early spring from Chile.

If you don't mind me asking, where is this located at? The guys at CnC told me about this shop awhile ago, but I forgot about it until you just brought it up.
