Larkin asks:

Can anyone tell me how to stop the fermentation process when the mead 
reaches the desired alcohol/sweetness point? I relise that keeping it 
in the refrigerator will do the trick but it only holds so much. 
Someone suggested heating the bottles of mead but I don't know what 
temperature is sufficient and how long to keep the bottles at that 

I'd like to know the answer to this one too, but for ciders. I don't
want to open the bottles to kill the yeast because I want to keep
the fizz in.

I've heard of this heating the bottles before, but the people I've
talked to about doing this have always ended up with exploding
