    Pasteurize the Honey?

    I am planning on making my first mead with local raw honey. I remember from John Palmers book that honey contains a lot of bacteria and wild yeast but it is inactive because of the lack of water in the honey. But when you make mead you add water, so the book talked about pasteurizing it before...
