Hey all! I just joined up a few minutes ago and have just recently started brewing and am having a small problem with my second batch of cyzer. It's in a 6 1/2 gal. glass carboy and I've pitched some Champagne yeast onto it and it weent well then stoppee abruptly. I've heard through podcaasts that pitching a lager yeast may munch on the other sugars and finish off the fermentation process. Anybody have any opinons on this strategy? Any help would be great!

How do you know it's stalled?

Champagne yeast has a high alcohol tolerance so its unlikely that the active fermentation stopped because of a yeast problem. Most likely , its just consumed most of the readily available sugars and has slowed down. Its till fermenting just at a much slower rate.
