Great job Viking, Vicky chose the right man for the job.
One thing I've always been confused about was gravity. In Ken Shramm's The Compleate Meadmaker, Ken says around what gravity to shoot for, but he doesn't say why gravity is important or what effect the gravity has on the mead.
If I want less gravity, I add more water/juice right? If my gravity is too low, do I add more honey? If my carboy is already full, I guess I would have to pour some out, right?
