    None. Dump honey, water, nutrients, and rehydrated yeast in a bucket and stir. No infections in over 40 batches of mead.

    I wasn't sure wether to pick none or other. Like ScottS, I don't do anything other than dump the honey, water and yeast into a bucket and stir.

    I don't ruin the flavor of my honey by heating it, and I really don't like the idea of boiling it either.

    I'll throw it out before I put chemicals in it.
