Any help will be appreciated, this is my first attempt at making mead.
All the equipment was sterilized by the book, and the honey was not heated to obtain a homogenous liquid - lots of stirring.
I have a 5 gallon batch in its 3rd week of fermentation.
I used Lalvilin EC-1118, LD Carlson yeast energizer, and a recommendation of Wyeast Beer Nutrient.
The first week the alcohol content measured 5.5%, 2 weeks later I completed the first racking, after that the content dropped down to ZERO!
As an attempt to recover, I added 1 lb. of honey with the intention to see the alcohol content restart.
It's fermenting, but still no "kicker" increase.
Presently it tastes like a bitter near beer.
Am I being too impatient?
