My batch of JAO has been at 1.044 PH ~3.4 for over a week. It's also very cloudy. I've been reading and understand it has a finish SG around 1.025-1.035. What do you guys think? Any suggestions on the next step to take?

I have, up to the first gravity reading, followed the recipe to a T. This is a 6gal batch. No initial reading either.


Thanks!


Upon further reading. It seems like my options are to try and restart, per the instructions Medsen posted earlier, or enjoy it as is. But what about the clarity, I got that the fermentation is stuck but why won't it clear? Anyway.
Unless someone suggests otherwise, I'm going to make a restarter and try to get it going again. Which yeast Fleischman's or EC-1118?

Here's the finished product.
It tastes so good. I definitely like the dry meads.


Thanks, again, for your help!
