Alright, I'll pick some up this weekend and add some. This is my first time making the mead so I'm not sure which kind of nutrient or how much to put. Could you give me a rough estimate for about 10L of must?

Add some yeast nutrient in the next month? Or add more yeast?

Okay, thanks for the info. I'll post back when the beer is ready. Hopefully it'll be nice :)

Is there a way for me to dial down the sourness taste during secondary fermentation? Maybe a different fruit?

So dry hopping happens during secondary fermentation inside my glass carboy right? I can just pop some hops in there and keep them there for the length of the secondary fermentation? Or do I need to remove them beforehand?

Oh! I'm happy to learn the proper way to check alcohol content after my first brew and not later down the road. Thanks for your help.
