My strawberry wine seems to have stopped fermenting. The airlock is still bubbling but the s.g. hasnt moved from 1.052 in wellover a week. Im new at this and woul appreciate any help. I was thinking maybe yeast nutrient or maybe repitching the yeast. Any ideas

Only thing I can think of is to check your hydrometer....consider this a bump. Good luck.

its a stretch but is your temp fluctuating? I am having a similar situation with my apfelwein. I believe my problem is being caused by bubbles that are congregating at the bottom of my hydrometer, lifting it artificially high. Perhaps check that and/or the temp.
