Well I waited too long I guess. I just checked the gravity and it was down 10 brix and I haven't added the second stage nutrients.
Is it too late to add them down? I tasted my reading and it is definately getting there. Still cloudy though, and a 3" floating ring of yeast towards the bottom.

Should I rouse them?

Transfer the mead to a secondary?

Add more nutrients? or is it already too late for that?

Thanks,

Just boil a bit of bread yeast and dump it in. It won't affect the taste like some commercial nutrients will when added too late
