Default Stuck frementation???

Hi guys, I've just tried to brew my first batch of Hard lemonade. The airlock was bubbling nicely for two days, then all of a sudden its stopped...
I've taken a reading with a hydrometer and its barely moved from its starting gravity...

What should I do? I've tried moving it into an airing cupboard to see if that gets it going

did the temperature suddenly drop??
have you tried rocking the fermenter carefully to resuspend the yeast?
the batch i made took 4 days to start but over a month to finish.
search this forum for hard lemonade, lorenae has good posts on the procedure
good luck,rod

Don't think the temperature dropped too much - maybe from 18C to 14C on a night?

I'm going to try rocking it today
