Default can I add more pectic enzyme?

hello all, i made a pear mead about 9 months ago and have racked it 3 times. i think i used pectic enzyme, but am not absolutely sure as i didnt write down the recipe. Is it possible to add it now to help it clear?

thanks.

It doesn't matter which forum- it's ok! You can add pectic enzyme at any time. If it's not a pectin haze, though, the pectic enzyme won't help. You can try sparkelloid or any other finings, which might help. I happen to like sparkelloid, but isinglass will work also. There are also finings like KC Superkleer that I've hard good things about, as well.
