I had ALOT of help from everyone on the forums so I wanted to share pics.

My brother owns a bakery so he brought me a million pounds if brown sugar so I used it hence the brown mop water ( I was so afraid it was gonna be horrible) after it fermented out it was kinda a straw color I then racked it onto blueberry's for a day then into the secondary which is where it is now

Thanks every for all the advice BTW it's very very tasty it ended around 10.48%

I made a batch of this on 1/12 and pitched a starter made from turbo yeast & lme on 1/14 into a 6 gallon better bottle and wrapped the BB in a blanket as ambient temps in my house this time of year is 65-68 and put it in my office.

Today I'm getting a heavy sulferish/rhino fart smell coming from it, stick on thermometer says 72 and I'm seeing heavy air lock activity 2-3 bubbles per second and a light foam on the top.

I'm assuming the smell is from the yeast becoming stressed. Is 2 days since pitching long enough to check SG to determine if I should add more nutrient/energizer? I can get a small wooden spoon in to try and aerate a bit, but being a carboy I can't really fit a wisk in.

Should I even muck with it at all, will it resolve on it's own? I don't mind living with the smell for a bit during the fermentation process, but my wife is looking forward to this drink and I'd had to ruin a batch.

I just checked my gravity of my Skeeter Pee. It was at 1.042, a little lower than what the recipe calls for but I went ahead and added my lemonaden juice, yeast energizer, yeast nutrient, and pectic enzyme due to the blueberries I have in there. I was pretty impressed when I began to sprinkle in the yeast nutrient and almost immediately the skeeter pee foamed up about an inch and a half, like an instant krausen the color was less purple than before; almost a neon pink! I'll take a reading this weekend to see where my gravity is at before I remove the blueberries and rack to the secondary.

Well, it has been 1 week since adding the Sparkalloid to my Skeeter Pee, and it has cleared nicely; it cleared faster than I thought it would. It went from looking neon pink, like pepto bismol, to looking like cranberry juice, to the translucent purple/pink color it is now. I went ahead and did a gravity reading and pulled out a little extra for tasting. Gravity is exactly as it was 1 week ago, so I think it is safe to say that the yeasties are finished. I will still wait another week per the skeeterpee.com recipe before adding any more sugar to sweeten, but it is already delicious. It is dry, with a solid blueberry taste that I was going for. I'm thinking these 6 gallons will not last very long

Well, I finally bottled my skeeter pee. I ended up with 24 wine bittles, a 1/2 gallon growler, and a 3/4 gallon growler full. I suspect this song last long so I might start some more this weekend or next
