Cool the honey and water to about 80 degrees.
Add the yeast and shake the mixture thoroughly, mixing it well.Put the airlock in the neck of the jug and store the mead in a warm room, between 70 and 80 degrees.Allow the mead to ferment for approximately 1 month.
Taste test some of the mead as you are siphoning. Add sterile honey-water if you want a sweeter mead.
Make the sterile honey-water mixture by stirring the honey into the boiling water. Let it cool before adding it to the mead.Bottle the mead when the bubbling from the airlock has slowed to less than 1 to 2 bubbles every minute.
Use a funnel to pour the mead into the bottles.
