Well, I got my hands on some pinot gris juice, and I've got about 8 lbs of honey to mix with it. I'm using lalvin 71b, and going for my first full 5 gallon batch. Should I pay attention to my temps for this ferment? I usually don't with my meads, and around this time of year my closet is about room temp (sometimes a little lower). Any concerns or should I just pitch the stuff and let fly?

This time of year your closet should be fine. I like to shoot for 68F-72F for all my meads but I don't get very upset when it's 2F+- either way.
