Today it's 1.052. I just sprinkled on some EC-1118 without hydrating it. If it doesn't move anymore, I'm just going to dump this batch. This is ridiculous. I'm done with mead :(

Thank you for the advice.

I added a tablespoon of the energizer, aireated for about 15 minutes, then cranked up the heat to 80.
