I made a 3 gallon batch of 11.25 lbs of honey
3 tsp yeast nutrient
1.5 tsp yeast energizer
1/8 tsp calcium carbonate(I thought I’d try this ahead of time because the pH always comes out low in 2-4 weeks) w/ my meads
Lalvin D-47 yeast 5g packet
I thought I’d try something different so I made the must, put it into a 6.5 gallon bucket(total 3.25 gallons), pitched the yeast, aerated it and put it into a 3 gallon glass carboy. It’s been 5 days and no sign of anything. I sanitized like crazy as usual so I think. Is it me or can the very small amount of yeast have something to do with it? What should I do now? Throw it out??? I’ve done other 5 gallon batches and they seem to be coming out pretty good.
