Default Zombie Beer?

My beer seems to have come back from the dead. It's been sitting in the secondary for 2 weeks with very little action,now it's bubbling like crazy. Anyone have this experience before?

Have you shook or moved it? Has the temperature risen?

Nope, haven't touched it, temp might have moved a bit, but shouldn't be a huge difference. Any ideas if this is just slow fermentation (maybe poor uptake by the yeast?), or something else?

It could be slow fermentation. I take it you may be a little new to home brewing but you will learn that bubbles mean nothing and GRAVITY READINGS are the only reliable marker of fermentation. Take a reading.
