Greetings mead-makers,

I am just starting to make meads, and would like more information on what is
considered the 'ideal' temperature to ferment at. Is it better to 'lager' a
mead, or is somewhere around the standard room temp. better?
I've also read/heard about using various strains of yeast, and would like some
feedback as to which types produce the best results for (subjectively of course)
a 'standard' honey mead. Champagne, wine, ale, lager, other?

Thanks in advance for any info. Replys may be directed to the digest, or
