I know from previous questions that you can use both Bentonite followed by Sparkolloid in the same mead. Am I correct in thinking the best process would be add bentonite, give a week, RACK OFF THE SEDIMENT,then add Sparkolloid and give enough time to clear and then a final racking? The key component I am asking is the racking between the two. I wanted to make sure that was correct thing to do. Thanks all.

Racking after clarification is always recommended since adding a clarifying agent often requires mixing it, which would disturb the sediments.

The only time I would not rack when adding a second clarifying agent would be if they work together, like Chitosan and Kieselsol.
