Well, my mead is fermenting along, but I noticed after about a week and a half, the yeast have slowed considerably. I'm not talking about airlock activity, but about actually watching the yeast. They were very aggressive up until about 3 days ago and now they seem sluggish. Should I throw some nutrient?
Also, while I have your attention, my mead will end up drying all the way out, and I'd like it slightly sweet, so I plan to add about a 1/2# honey at a time until i max my yeast out to increase abv (currently will be +\-10%) and to make sweeter.
Should I do this addition in primary while on the cake? Or try secondary? If primary, should I wait until the yeast year through all the honey currently in there before I add more? Or should I just mix a half lb of honey with a little warm water and nutrient and toss it in?!?
