I've never needed two packets of yeast.

as some others i'm on my first it took weeks to ferment, and now since i also used 2 lbs wild blackberries and 1/2 ounce of Stella hops, i am right now at 9 months bulk aging, my next will be a old fashioned straight mead my first i just made up my own recipe, i used wildflower honey, and blackberries and Stella hops all three give flora flavors so, i gambled, aint sure yet but no risk, no gain,

I haven't added pH stuff to my toolkit and repertoire yet. But sounds like it may be time.
