Yeah from what I understand and have experienced unless you use stepped additions of nutrients and energizer and plenty of aeration for the first few days you will have a fermentation that takes months instead of 2 weeks. I'm on my second mead (blueberry) and used some harvested S05 yeast, some yeast nutrient, 2.5 pounds of honey, and 1 pound of frozen crushed blueberries November 22nd and it's still going.
I have since listened to Ken Schramm on the brewing network and picked up a copy of his book so I think my next mead attempt will be much shorter. My goal is a mead in the 6-8% range that is drinkable in 2 months which I think is very reasonable.
