7561Re: [Distillers] Sugar Wash - Impatient??
- Dec 1, 2002I had a high gravity wash that was about the same as yours. It slowed
down like you described and I was told to "rack" the yeast. To dump the
wash from one container to another several times making big a splash as
possible to aerate the wash.
It didn't help mine, it finally just stopped. I even bubbled pure
oxygen from my acetelene torch through the wash hoping it would help.
