I started a batch of JAOM on the 11th of January this year and the airlock has slowed down a lot now and is about 1 bubble every 2 hours or so.
The other day i checked it and most of the fruit had dropped down to the bottom but when i checked it this morning the fruit had gone back up to the top. Does anyone know why this happened or what is causing it. Is it normal?

p.s sorry if this is a basic question or im just being a pest

Not unusual, probably just still degassing. Also a low pressure front (weather that is) could bring some CO2 out of solution and bring some fruit up.

CO2 bubbles can form on the fruit and raise it.

just let it be until they sink again, then bottle.

i will let it sit until all of the fruit has dropped then bottle.
