I didn't add anything. And yes I had fermentation at one point the gravity dropped and the air lock bubbled. I added the tablets last night and got the yeast tonight going to add tomorrow night.

What is rousting the yeast? Does yeast energizer work better than yeast nutrient?

Read my post about yeast with a helping hand. I have some wine that is bubbling slow? Added a lot of sugar after fermentation started

I had that problem also with premier. I don't know the attenuTion off hand but I have added cuvee ( blue pack) or the champagne (yellow pack) to dry it out.

Add both if you have them, Energizer is like food for yeast, Nutrient is like vitamins for yeast.
