    It's never too late to adjust the taste until it's in your mouth! Many people actually do what you do -- that is, make a larger batch they break down into smaller ones, so they can make multiple flavors/types of mead. Many people like to wait until the mead is in the secondary fermenter too. Others add flavoring in the primary, and still others, at bottling time. It's really all a matter of taste and preference. For a recent discussion on adding fruit to the primary or secondary, go here:,1076.0.html

    Additions of spices could work similarly.
