Re: Reactivating mead
How did they recommend reactivating (I assume the yeast and not the fertilizer)? Did you use energizer or nutrients (they're different)? And did you do anything to aerate/oxygenate at pitching? (DON'T now, either way). Certainly it's lagging a bit at this point, but it'd be interesting to see if there's a SG change over time (still trickling along). It's only at about 7.5%, way below what the yeast can handle if in good health.
Certainly you could repitch some additional yeast, properly rehydrated and oxygenated first (see the stickied thread for dry-yeast tips). For a couple bucks it's cheap insurance.
