Got my first mead made last week
Recipe is simple
2 1/2 gal of h20
12lbs of honey
3lbs of frozen cherrys and 2 quarts of cherrys
Question on this yeast,
If i got the right yeast, This is going to made a sweet mead...Well least thats what i am shooting for.
Is this yeast like beer yeast, Where after so long...It will just stop?
Or do you need to stop the yeast when your happy with the gravity your looking for?
I "thought" the mead was done fermenting in 7 days...i moved it from primary to a secondary because i didnt see any movement in the airlock...hadnt for a full day....moved it and now in a glass carboy it seems to have a nice clear crauson going on...
So thats why i asked about the yeast and if i have to cold crash it or not?
Also, Looking for the sweet mead...IF i have to kill those poor yeastie's that worked so hard..
..What gravity should i be shooting for?
Thanks again for the help
