    If you are using a store bought Apple cider to start this, check your label. If the cider

    I did 15 lbs of honey to 5 gallons of water which gave me an OG of 1.101 it finished at 1.012
    and that was using White labs sweet mead yeast.

    Actually, now that I re-racked it has started pushing...I'm just so used to beer or mead, which
    I have found is usually a much more busy fermentation. It seems to be moving along now though.

    If I could get a little advice...I have a gallon that I put up to ferment 4 days ago. Nothing.
    My og is 1.062 I used a red star champagne yeast. it was well aerated.
