    Hi all,

    I've just finished a gallon of Show Mead. I found out that Mead shouldn't be racked until it is finished. It cleared brilliantly as my Mead always seem to, without finnings.
    I had a stuck ferment, which always seems to happen, but I also found out that you should add more nutrient than a fruit wine because it doesn't have the things the yeast needs in honey.
    Turned out nicer than my previous mead. Just hope the other 2 gallons I have on the go work out too. I've had nothing but problems with a Pyment and Metheglin I'm brewing.

    Ingredients for my Show Mead:

    4lb Honey from ASDA £5.60
    1/2 tsp powdered tannin
    3 tsp of acid
    1 heaped tsp of super yeast
    1 tsp of nutrient (should have added more 72 hours in :doh:)

    Came out at 14% ABV
    Cost per bottle = £1.69
