My SP is chugging along on the third day, should I be whipping air into it daily to degas?

On a degassing note: is there something I don't know? I put my degassing wand connect to my drill in my carboy, did a small burst, 2-3 seconds, to see what would happen. The resulting explosion ended with about a 3-4 inch geyser spouting out of my carboy and 1-2 liters of 1.030 Skeeter Pee on the floor.

Did I miss a step somewhere along the line?

Don't degas until its ferments out. .999 or lower

Those look great! What did you do to flavor them?

At bottling time I added 2 packs of koolaid to 5 litres of pee. Adds a great flavour and very simple.

Oh, ok. I guess this was the part of the recipe where I added the second round of lemon, nutrient, etc.

"Periodically check the gravity. When it gets down to around 1.050, add the other 3 tsp of nutrient the second tsp of energizer, and the last bottle of lemon juice; vigorously mix it in. Don’t be afraid to introduce some oxygen to the mix at the same time."

So, "vigorously mixing" doesn't mean with a degassing wand?

Oops. No use a whisk or something like it and just stir the top kinda. It's just to introduce a little more oxygen too keep the ferment going. A wand would bring up all the co2 in the solution.

A whisk by hand*. No drill

It's not to degas as much as it is to add oxygen. If its going real strong you could skip the whipping. I whip it until its dropping a fair amount of sg a day. Then let it run its course. The oxygen is just helping them yeasties stay strong.
