- Thanks to eveyone for the help!
I put the wash on last Wednesday, using 6kg of sugar, the oranges
juice/peel and added some nutrient as was suggested. I used two
packs of dried EC 1118 to start it, and it is bubbling away, but very
slowly - around 1 bubble through the airlock every 3 - 5 seconds.
(Its in a 25 degree constant temp room, and was airated for an hour
before I added the yeast).
I've just been looking around Tony's site, and was reading about how
much nutrient I should have used - apparently up to 60g for a 25L
wash? I just followed the instructions on the pack (1/4 tsp per 5L),
and in hindsight this seems not enough by far, and the instructions I
assume are for wine?
What does this mean as far as my wash goes? Would it be going faster
if I had of added more nutrient? I guess its too late to add more
nutrient now? Do I just wait it out now? What kind of rate do other
EC 1118 users find?
P.S. I found a supplier for Mollasses - so I guess that will be the
next experiment! Any info in advance would be appreciated!
