woah, I don't know. I haven't learned to check out the gravity of wort yet. I'm not sure I will, either. I'm too lazy. I hope no-one thinks I'm being unfaithful to beer, but I am steering clear of the science stuff and just keeping notes of what I did, and whether the beer was any good or not. So far, all the beer has been good, but I don't know how much alcohol it has or anything like that.
I just pitched a package of dried yeast to be on the safe side. The smack pack wasn't showing any signs of life five hours after I smacked it. If it inflates sometime in the next few days I will make another batch of beer on Sunday. Maybe I will pitch the whole thing then. Is there a negative consequence from pitching twice as much yeast as necessary? I mean, it multiplies in the beer anyway right?
I figured after spending five hours making the wort, I'm not into experimenting with funky yeast. But I would like to not waste it.
