This will be my first mead I’ve ever made and was reading the instructions and had some confusion as to adding nutrients. It says to stir is but I will be using carboys to make this mead. Should I give the carboy a good sloshing after the nutrient addition or use the handle end of my stirring spoon to try and work it in. I know that sloshing is a no no in brewing beer after fermentation begins but would it be alright with making mead?
I plan on following the instructions closely but I intend on either splitting it and adding a strawberry or maybe raspberry puree to one and leaving the other as is, or maybe doing a combination of the strawberry and raspberry puree. I may also attempt a sparkling mead with the melomel side of the two.
