I just made my first batch of mead the other day and I used hightest (sorry if not spelled right) recipe from his sticky for a basic mead. I did stage 1 and stage 2 nutrients with no problem. Stage 3 is supposed to be O.G.+T.G./2. My problem is that I have no clue what T.G. stands for. Thanks in advance.

T.G. stands for Terminal Gravity, also know as Final Gravity (FG). This is the specific gravity reading taken after fermentation has been completed (or in this case, the anticipated specific gravity once fermentation is complete.)
