Yeah, I leave my sloe gin two years.

comment Sloe wine: going very slowly
Still appreciated. I did add some nutrient at the beginning, it was given to me along with the yeast, but if the sloes are lacking in the nutrient then maybe they need more than usual.

comment Warming up a demijohn / carboy
Keeping it near a radiator helped a little, as does shaking it around every so often. It's still slow, but not dead yet.

I've placed it near (but not too near) a radiator and I'll see if that helps.

Curious. It looks like it would only heat a specific section of it. Is that designed to make the warm bits rise and stir the contents for you?

I hadn't heard the word 'carboy' before. Is that the american name?

Btw, it's pretty wintery here - 65F (18C) would be nice

Thanks. I'll make sure not to do anything sudden. Despite your warning, I might wrap it, but I'll be careful - I don't think it's active enough to heat up too much, but I'll keep my eye on it.

That would be true if the yeast were active enough, but I'm not sure it is.

Okay, I'll be patient. And nervous. :)
