I just started the recipe that FlowerPlanter kindly shared here and it got me thinking about a question that seems to have varying answers (what a surprise) when I check mead sites.
Is it beneficial to introduce air and / or de-gas the must during the early stages of fermentation? The most common answer I seem to find is yes...for a few days and then leave it be. Can anyone offer opinions? By the way, the recipe seems to be turning out great!
