10120Re: Problem Solving: Yeast
- Jan 5, 2004My wash was 25 litres with 6kg of sugar. I used fermaid K (50g) and
(100g) and just pitched both together.
next wash add 23 liters with 3 kg sugar warmed to 80f and mixed well,
start the yeast in a glass or jar per. instructions. after the yeast
has waited the 15 min. toss it into the wash. Stop and cover. after
12-24 hours open and stir, after about 5-7 days add 3 kg sugar to 2
liters of warm water and toss in and mix for a total of 25 liters
only about 30 gm of ec1118 is needed. and 1 tsp. of fermax per. 3
liters make sure all is well mixed
