Do fermentation temperatures affect the overall taste of the mead and if so in what ways? I'm using a red star champagne yeast with about 15 pounds of clover honey with very active fermentation. its currently around 65 degrees F and i'm wondering if i can change the overall flavor but either heating up or cooling the must.

The search tool is your friend.
If you search "high temperature" you'll find a bunch of threads that discuss this issue. To sum it up, high temperature fermentations are a good way to make paint thinner, not mead.
