After having made quite few successful batches of JAOM, Ive just made one that now, at the 2 week mark is being very sluggish. It never really was at quite the fever pitch the other batches were at this point. Now Im getting a bubble every 15 seconds or so almost as if it were a "Show" Mead it would be nearing its first racking. Now Ive read the FAQ's on this and will be in the next few days be contemplating using the tips for restarting using 1116 or 1118 yeast strains.
I started this with D-47 and I thought I had aireated it enough like the other batches....So basically...If I need to slam some air into this should I draw off some and toss into a blender? I dont want to disturb the fruit cap at this point so early. Any ideas on getting this going again?
