started a 5-6 gal batch of apfel wein on sunday, using cloudy applel juice dextrose and a tea spoon of wine yeast
is it normal for it to have not started fermenting yet?
theres also some crap on the top that might jus be yeast i spose
oh and i added abit more yeast this morning too
I made EdWort's Apfelwein on Saturday afternoon (ok, SWMBO did), and it was going strong yesterday (Monday) morning.
i must have done something wrong
when should i expect to be seeing a bubble a second in the air lock?
its hard to maintain a temp of about 21c without a heat belt or anythin..
after adding the yeast earlyer, and it sitting for a couple of hours it now looks like this;
any better? the yeast seems to be slightly foamy
Let it go for two more days and let us know what's happening then. Make sure all your seals are good and that there's water in the airlock. It looks good and cloudy. What type of juice did you use?
cloudy applejuice from liddle.. im pretty sure it didnt have preservetives, said 100% fruit content on it
tryin to keep it warm but it gets quite cold in the night and in the mornin when i cant keep it warm (using central heating and portable heater lol)
Looks like it's slowly starting to me. What wine yeast did you use?
brewmaker, express, wine yeast compound
it also says
ingredients: sygar, dried yeast, diammonium hydrogen orthophosphate
In the blue tub? It can get a little 'aged' and 'slow to ferment' if you've had an open tub a while.
i think iv only had it for a few weeks.. im gonna blame it on the cold weather for now and try to get a better method of keeping it the right temp
yep just give it more time, although, mine took off in < 6 hours
