Subject: Re: Mead Lover's Digest #181 (July 29, 1993)
I’m interested in any organization for promoting the brewing and
consumption of mead. Are there any New Mexicans interested in
getting together and exchanging mead lore and expertise?

Subject: My Tupelo's Stuck!!!
Ok. I had five 5-gallon carboys started over the same weekend. Kept at the sam
e temperature, same location, given the same car
and so forth. One of the batches has mysteriously gone still.
Tupelo honey & Epernay II yeast. It was dropping down quite nicely
until it hit about 6% alcohol potential remaining (SG 1.050) and it’s
been there for well over a week. No bubbles, no nothing. I re-racked
into a fresh carboy with new yeast, yeast energizer, as well as some
nutrient. Nada. Nothing. Zip.
I can certainly use the stuff in its present form as a rather sweet
still mead, but I’d prefer to kick it back into action and bottle it
So…any new and improved ideas on jumpstarting a batch?
