I recently brewed my first mead (Northern Brewer's Traditional Sweet Mead) on 2/13.
My OG was 1.080 and my airlock was showing activity after about 8-10 hrs and the temp has remained in the 65-70 range the entire time.
Today I decided to take a hydrometer reading because my airlock activity was starting to slow down drastically and was surprised to find it was only at 1.050.
I was expecting it to be much closer to my target (1.010) at this point and am now worried my fermentation may be stuck.
I used 1 activator of Wyeast 4184 and my recipe called for 12lbs of wildflower honey and I staggered my nutrient additions as recommended in the sticky.
What do you mead experts think? Am I rushing things or should I start thinking about re-pitching?
Thanks in advance
