Well, besides the acid you also need a healthy dose of yeast nutrient.
You generally need more than what the label on the yeast nutrient
specifies for mead since the label usually gives the amount for wine.
You'd think that honey would be high in nutrients that yeast needs but
apparently this is not the case. One thing to watch out for is that too
much yeast nutrient can adversely affect the taste or may require that
you let it sit even longer than a year to get rid of the taste. Last
time I made mead I used twice the recommended amount and it could have
probably used even a little more than that.
