Thanks Harrke! Maybe I'll wait for the oranges to sink.If you have a hydrometer now, test it a
few times over a week or so and if the gravity readings don't change then it's no longer

how it tu...

Yes; 2-4 weeks primary then cold crash 2-4. I'm sure you could cold crash in a nice bath but
keeping a container iced for a month seems... Inconvenient. Primary only with no crash is
fine.(not sure ho...

So I made this Saturday night so it's been 34 hours and no activity in the airlock. I know the
airlock is not the most accurate way of measuring fermentation so I will take a reading
tomorrow, but was...
