    First Batch early issue

    Hey Everyone, I am a two days into my first batch of mead, and I am a bit worried already. I started with 13lbs of honey from a local producer in Marin County, and 4 gallons spring water. I used the AIH mead kit for my additives, and added the .25 tsp. Potassium Metabisulfite, six tsp. Acid...
