    I think I used old yeast...I'm experiencing little to on fermentation...I already added chemicals...can I restart the process? Buy new yeast...add sugar again...etc.

    Welcome to the world of more questions for answers.
    But its part of giving solid advise.
    Could be a simple package of yeast has you down the road for $1
    Could be if your must is cold its a dollar waisted.
    Could be youve added potassium sorbate and your going to need to pull all the stops to get it started.

    also could be not enough patience. fermentation in some instance can take 48 hours to start.
