MM Crow!
That's a very good question! The type of yeast makes a big difference. Some supply stores online actually sell 'mead yeast' but most use a champaigne yeast. If you want it to be sweeter, you can always toss in a campden tablet to stop the fermentation before it becomes dry.

Merry Meet!

I have crafted mead and wine. My partner makes beer. I am really looking to make a sweeter mead. The last batch was a little dry to my taste. Used a Lavlin yeast blend. I have finally tracked down a local bee keeper and am able to get my honey. Does anyone have any suggestions?

Is it the honey ratio? Do I need to use a champagne yeast? I am in the learn as you go group. And I keep breaking my hydrometer.

Greetings all,
I am an amateur brewer of adult beverages, specializing in mead and floral wines, and just dabbling into beers and ciders. Hope to share or trade advice, recipes, or suggestions!

MM and greetings, Thank you for allowing me to join this elite group. I am looking forward to making our own Mead when we get settled in the US in NC. Until then I will most likely just be an observer or lurker. But I am here.

Hey Keeper! Glad that you joined us! Is that a pic of mead that you have made? It looks good and clear. I'm fairly new to Mead as I usually brew different styles of ales. I want to make a dry mead like champagne, but I don't want my bottles to explode! lol
