I am making a mead I have made several times. 3.5 pounds of honey, water to make a little over a gallon. zest of one orange, crush 1/2 nutmeg nut, 2 cloves and 10 allspice nuts crushed and one cinnamon stick. I used QA23 yeast, go ferm and fermaid 0 day 1 and 3. Initial reading was 1.090. 9 days later saw no activity so checked a reading and it was 1.050. I gave it a gentle stir and added one more dose of fermaid to see if I could kick start it and it started fermenting again but now on 2/1 it has stopped again. Still reading 1.050. I am thinking about drawing off a cup, adding some 1118 to it and adding it back into the main but if that doesn't work any other suggestions? I have never had any problems with this recipe before.
