    One thing for sure it tastes GOOD!

    Which of the Yeasts listed would be best for a Sweet Mead?

    Re: First Sweet Mead

    After Fermentation has ceased, is it recommended to add something like “Potassium Metabisulfite” so that when I add more honey the Fermentation does not start back?
    Thanks to all for your Help!
