Merlot Fermentation Stopped
 
I have four 5 gal carboys full of freshly pressed Merlot juice that has been fermenting for a week on Montrachet red yeast for a week. I pressed it on Monday and all but the very first 5 gals have stopped fermenting.

I was thinking of pitching 1 packet of yeast with some yeast nutrient and splitting it between the three carboys that stopped. Will this be enough to restart fermentation?

Any suggestions appreciated.

False Alarm. Just checked the SG and it is 0.992.
OG was 1.114.
It just fermented way faster than I expected (10 days).

That's pretty typical! I've had some ferment out in 5 days, even before I got a chance to go to secondary.
