IMHO, visual signs of fermentation are mostly useless. In this cause your fermentation seems to have slowed so there is little CO2 being generated, so it's not pushing out the air-lock. The fermentation is probably continuing gently.So it's been 12 hours since I gently stirred the wine in the primary fermenter and remeasured the specific gravity. The airlock hasn't bubbled since then. Yesterday when I first tested it and replaced the lid and airlock, it started bubbling again almost immediately. If the airlock isn't bubbling does it mean the fermentation has stopped? Is this normal after stirring? Am I too impatient?
