It has been in secondary fermentation for just over 2 months now. Just checked it and its still bubbling away.
The one question I have is does the type of yeast used affect the taste? I used turbo yeast to make mine because thats what I had at the time. If this works out well I will be making lots more in the future.
Yes it does! Some have buttery taste, some don't impart anything, while others can even give spicy or fruity aroma.
Be careful about letting the must sit on the lees too long as it will give some off flavors.
