UPDATE: Finally got around to checking gravity on batch 2, and was surprised to see adding
fresh yeast and cherries got gravity down from 1.045 to 1.043 in 17 days. I added 3.5 oz of dme

UPDATE: First batch is flat still, but that's gonna be the status for quite a while. Second

Any advice? Not even a slight "psst" when opened after 30wks in the bottle. They have been in

Planecrazy29, I'm planning a road trip next month up your way for sour cherry season. How much

Thanks for the feedback. It's a solid and heavy piece of machinery, so I don't doubt it can
