How many times can you pitch yeast? I'm doing a batch of gooseberry wine. The fermentation became really slow. I started at a 1.100 and it got really slow at 1.030 after about 3 weeks. I racked the old yeast out and repitched the yeast EC-1118. 24 hours later no movement can I or should I pitch the yeast again? I'm using corn sugar. Not really sure what caused the slow fermentation temp is around 70F.
