I like Edme/S-33 because it can hit 13% abv. You can easily make a sweet mead with this stuff by taking no more than 3lbs of honey per gallon (more of a dessert mead, drop to 2.5lbs if you don't want it that sweet).

Yes but I usually don't for one simple reason. My fermentor is full, and hot temps and beer yeast do not mix.

I works just great if you can keep it at 67 degrees.

The nice thing about wine yeasts is they do just fine at higher temps. I keep my house at 78degrees and don't get any off flavors from mead.

I'm piggy-backing on an old thread: What FG can I expect from a melomel brewed with 1056? OG is going to be around 1.077.

I hope someone sees this.
