So I'm trying to play around with the mead calculator, but I'm not 100% sure what I'm supposed to extropolate from it...

I'd use the mead calculator help button, but it sends me to a non-existing page... so... here I am. So any help would really be appreciated.


I have a mini batch that's currently bubbling away right now.

3 Gallon
~ 10 Lbs Honey
32 Oz Unsweetened Cranberry Juice
1 Pkg Red Star Pasteur Yeast
3 Tsp Yeast Nutrient

All looks good, smells good, and it tastes even better.

But I'm not sure if I needed to add MORE honey? I'm trying to use the calculator using this recipie to learn how to use it.

My first reading was off my Hydrometer chart, I had the wrong hydrometer (used for beer.. not mead..) so I'm guessing the OG was 1.13 to 1.14


So, how can I learn to use this usefull too?


Thanks in advance to all the guru's around here. This is only my second batch, but I'm already hooked!
