      I haven't used rapid rise bread yeast before, I usually stick with white labs, but I would think that you'd be done in 1-2 weeks tops.  Did you get a specific gravity reading for your mash?  That might help in roughly determining the length of the fermentation period.

      Hey, I have had a mash fermenting for 2-3 days now that I added the
      yeast in at the wrong time on. I just added the yeast now. It is rapid
      rise bread machine yeast. How long until it is ready to distill? I
      know that when it stops bubbling, it's done. But how long might that
      be? anyone know?
