Mead. Activated or not?!

Question: Mead!. Activated or not!?
If a 5 gallon batch of mead is prepared properly, but after two days there is no sign of bubbles or anything else at the top of the must, but a small amount of sugar is poured in and it does bubble, does that mean the mead is activated but just working slowly!?Www@FoodAQ@Com

Two days is too early to see any signs!. When I make mead, I generally don't see any signs of fermentation for four or five days!. Adding sugar to the batch is only going to release any gasses in the mix!.

Hopefully, you used yeast nutrient and some sort of acid in your batch!. Otherwise, it'll never ferment out!.Www@FoodAQ@Com

Maybe the room you have it in is too cold or too warm!. If the room is too cold the yeast will go dormant!. Try moving it to a warmer room and wait a few days!.Www@FoodAQ@Com

You can't be in a hurry to make mead!. Put it aside for a year or two and forget about it while you make something else!. Eventually, you will have something worth drinking!.Www@FoodAQ@Com
