I'm pretty new to mead-making, so this may turn out to be more of a garden-variety mead newbie question.
Approximately 1 month ago I made 5 gallons of mead and pitched one packet of Wyeast 4184 directly into the must. The OG was 1.094.
I took a hydrometer reading today and the gravity was only down to 1.080! I definitely saw quick activity, and given the amount of bubbling over the past month I would have expected it to be nearing terminal gravity by this point.
Am I just really jumping the gun? Does this yeast take several months to fully ferment or did it poop out? I did not make a starter, but I did add some yeast nutrient when I pitched.
Any ideas? Should I go buy more yeast or just let 'er ride?
