I guess I'll dump and try again. Next time I'll put some effort into making whatever is in the can (and of course read up on it) or get a can deemed a higher quality.

Really? I tried a bit on my finger, I think it just tastes plain awful. I love green apple!

Cheers guys, and thanks for the help!


Airlock is still bubbling slowly. Does this mean the yeast may have finally activated (though I probably lost a bunch raking I'd figure), or does this mean nothing?

What was the temp you pitched at? did you see signs of vigorious fermentation? reading your OP you didnt mention cooling the 20L of boiling water after you mixed it all up befor you added the yeast.

EDIT: reading is hard! yeah 2L boiling 20L cool water nevermind im an idiot sometimes
