Re: Longest Ferment
- Unfortunately when I started this I had the attitude (Who needs a
hydrometer)... I have now seen the error of my ways.. On a better
note, when I arrived home last night I found that the wash was barely
bubbling. When I checked it this morning there was no life at all..
So it looks like it finally finished. Next time I won't make the same
mistake!! Thanks for the help though
