      Hi Jim,
      CQ here, 1.110 starting, ending after one week was1.094 at 73.4 deg. In the next few days not much diffrentice. For the next week I lost track ( messing with it ) I put the whole  gal. in the still Started collecting at 172 and stopped at 176 degs.
      No yeast nutrients, other than the juce from 5 or 6 limes, also I have no way to ck PH.
      Solids? ( This is new to me, ) yeasties need something to hang on to? cork,orange peels or ?
      Yes, I used just plain white sugar, cheep stuff.
                                                         Thanks for the come-back Jim----cq

      Hi C.Q.,

      Im a little confused here - you say the starting SG was 10.0 - did you
      mean 1.100, 1.110 - or the Balling was 10.0 (in which case you would a
      only had about a 5% wort) - not sure what you ment.

      Also, what was the ending SG? and how much wort did you put in your

      Premier Cuvee can operate up to 35 C - about 95 F per their
      specifications - but it is a bit warm at 88 F.

      How much yeast nutrients did you add and what was the PH? Did you add
      any solids to the sugar wort for the yeasties to hang on to and was it
      just white sugar?

      If you can answer these questions, maybe i can help ya.

      Vino es Veritas,
