Ok so need some quick advice... the 3 gallon batch at our Beekeeping club that we made was started 3 days after a one gallon batch at home ( home batch cleared already and I have bottled it) and it's the one where the airlock was broke and I put a new one on the same day.

As of yesterday the 3 gallon batch isn't bubbling and isn't even close to clear. Only difference is we used different well water.

Just give it more time or can I do something like add a little more yeast or something?

The Nature Center where we have it at will be closed til after new years after tomorrow so I have to do it tomorrow...if there's anything to do...

It's fine. Leave it alone... you mess with it and you void the warranty. When it's clear and the fruit is dropping, it's done.

The Raisin are dropping but not the oranges... and definitely not clear... I guess a 3 gallon batch takes longer than a 1 gallon batch eh?

Indeed. Just relax. Unless it smells bad, you're good.
