Not really a mead question but,
I started this Resiling wine kit about a week ago and when it didn't start bubbling I re-pitched some yeast using KV-1116. Within a very few minutes it was bubbling like crazy, and I mean really bubbling like you where just blowing through an airlock. Then a few more minutes later it completely stopped and dosen't show any pressure at all. Whats up with that???

On a related note, I've re-pitched the yeast on the last 4 batches of mead or wine. I don't know if I need to warm the water first, have more patience, or wait longer for the sulfites to dissipate in the meads. Suggestions??
