oops, wrong button!

anyway, mead generally needs to age; bare minimum 6 months, in the bottle. i
don't hold with so-called "quick meads", they tend to be be insipid, cloying
drinks.

finally, although out of period, you can stablize your mead using campden
tablets and potassium sorbate. both are available at (almost) any homebrew
shop. i've used it, especially when sweetening an completely fermted out
mead/wine. works well, doesn't affect the flavor.
