Re: Funky yeast behavior
- I wouldn't worry, it is just a thin wort to start with.
YOu have bubbles?
Movement of the yeast bottom to surface
A slightly above ambient temp?
If the answer is yes then just let it run it's course for a few weeks
I am using EC1118 for a brandy wort now, no cap or yeast foam at
all.just a layer of bubbles, like a thin beer head
Spec grav. 1.17
What is your spec. grav. ?

I believe that Turbo's claim to fame starts with a huge amount of yeast
(with nutrients, etc) and is what is missing in your formula. Try more yeast
when making a large batch or just be patient when using less. Alltech has a
good yeast comparable to what you used and is sold in 500 gm (1/2 lb) bags
for around, what, $7 US? Dang, wish I had a memory...
