The following are FAQs compiled by one of our resident experts on meads, Hightest. If you've been a follower of brewing forums and hung out in the mead sections very much, you've seen this name. Hightest was kind enough to pass along this compilation of links to his own FAQ pages and we thank him for it.For the benefit of those who may not know me, my name is "Hightest". My mead-making background goes back over two decades. Some of you may have seen my screen name on brewing forums such as: The Brewboard, WinePress, Got Mead, Northern Brewer, and More Beer. I was a mead forum moderator for over four years, organizing and managing several online group brews, and answering many brewing related questions.During those moderating days, I found forum members often asked common questions. When I realized how many times I answered these questions, I prepared some FAQs to save me a bunch of keystrokes. The following topics will link you to these FAQs (With the exception of the speadsheet (XLS), all are in PDF format):BasicsWhat is Mead?Honey Fermentation ConcernsMaking A Basic MeadRehydrating Dry YeastStaggered Nutrient AdditionsMaple Syrup, Facts & GradesAdditivesYeast Nutrients, Energizers, etc.Urea Based NutrientsFining: What, When, & WhySparkolloid FiningBentoniteAdding Potassium CarbonatePotassium SorbateToolsCalculate Your Mead's OGMead Calculator Spreadsheet :lol: (1/31/09)Refractometer How to :) (2/18/09)I Need Help...!

I only ask that you be patient for my reply as I'm finding that I'm not able to spend as much time online as in the past... :)
