I have been making some Orange wine. After a couple of months I've tasted it
and it sure is sweet.

Should I add some more yeast?

Look here for a method of restarting a stuck fermentation... Jack's
pages are a wonderful resource for all types of winemaking issues...
Stop in amd look around

Some more info is ESSENTIAL to answer this question. At minimum, what
was the starting sg, and current sg. Some indicatiion of temperatures
would be nice as well. Also what recipe did you follow, and which
yeast did you use?

It's really tough to give useful answers without some info to work on.
Maybe you used way too much sugar, and it will never ferment to dry.

My memory is all fouled up from a head injury. But I distinctly remember
following a recipe from one of the wine sites so I don't think I added too
much sugar. In fact, I think I added less than they asked for because the
oranges were so sweet to begin with.
