Other Fermentables / hydromel semi-sweet mead
« on: January 07, 2010, 06:59:37 PM »
I'm currently fermenting my 1st mead ever.  After one week my fermentation got stuck, so I racked to secondary and added more energizer and yeast nutrient.  I'm using wyeast sweat mead yeast.  Ever since racking it has been fermenting away.  It has been 2 months now and is still showing signs of fermentation.  What is the time table for a semi-sweet hydromel mead.  I was thinking that it should have been done by now.
