Esters make it stink like banana or mayflowers. Good progress but I just don't want to end the
ferment too early. I don't plan on racking. I think I will let the primary ferment run for
about 14-20 da...

Heat is part of the reason why my summer sake became sour. However I believe food grade plastic
