- Aug 3, 2009I did it all at once when we were developing the MUM. It took over a week to ferment but then again the temperature was about 18C which also slowed things down. And it wasn't miracle growth but some local generic fertilizer.

Most people dont eat Breakfast, lunch and Dinner all in one sitting, That just wouldnt be healthy. I almost always have a Hydrometer floating in the wash. I never feed nutrients to a wash below 1.015.
> The ferment is usually over in 4 days because of the way the nutrients are fed to it. In my experience, If you miss a feed time(give or take a few hours) the ferment slows dramatically. Add nutrients and it speeds back up. The intervals that I laid out seem to keep the action consistent. All that slowing and speeding up stress the little buggers out too.
