So I just added some ld carlson bentonite to my gallon of mead to clear it up.
was wondering if I should keep it at 68-71 degr. or in my mini fridge at 49-55.
did not know what temp range would be best. Thanks

Well it'd probably be fine at the higher temp, but if there's space in the mini-fridge put it there.

It'd be like a partial cold crash. Not really down to the 33/34F for a proper cold crash, but I'd have thought it should help........

4 degrees celcius worked for me, you can check my post subjected First Bentonite Experiment.

Honestly, you don't need it. Just let it sit longer. I have some bentonite I used once. It didn't seem to work and actually I thought it screwed the taste up. I'd just go with letting it sit longer or cold crashing it before using that stuff.

Just my 2 copper (pre 1982 penny anyway)
