Firstly, I’m new here so I don’t know if I’m in the right area, but I post my question. I’m having a primary fermentation (mead) which I have started just recently. I have used qa23 yeast and rehydrated it with Go-Ferm and I will use Fermaid-O as yeast nutrition. I will use oak spirals in my primary fermentor. However I’m quite uncertain of how to proceed with my secondary when that day come. Should I use a fining agent and cold crash after fermentation is done and rack my mead to a new vessel and add my secondary yeast and sugar (honey) and then bottle it? I will use EC-1118 to carbonate. I will use a bidule and crown cap and let sit for a 6-12months before degorging. So my main question is if I should done my mead before adding my new yeast? I’m thinking of the competitive factor between my qa23 yeast and EC-1118.
