When I buy a new strain I make 2x the starter I need and hold back half. So I start every batch

I've had l...

Acetobactor will produce a much more desirable vinegar than any chemical conversion. They also
don't tolerate alcohol much above 20% so you're better off using regular wine, cider, mead, or
a strong b...

Relax. Don't worry. Have a homebrew.It's not uncommon for yeast to be mostly done in 48 hours.
