I am planning on making two 5 gallon batches of mead sometime in the near future. I'd like to try two different yeasts. I believe last time I did a mead I used 12# honey and D47 yeast and it came out very dry. This time I would like to have a sweet and a semi-sweet or dry mead. Does anyone have any recommendations for yeasts and honey amounts (I have a large supply right now). The last time I made a sweet mead I used Wyeast 4184 Sweet Mead and it came out overly sweet (can't remember how much honey I used and it may have fermented cold), is that typically a problem with this yeast?
