    The temperature drop will cause a negative pressure differential. If you're using a glass jug
    that juice might gave come in, a cap is probably good. The pressure drop will pull some CO2 out
    of suspens...

    Sounds like your local brew shop staff have never made wine nor mead before.

    Here's a radical idea: make a 3.5 gallon batch (the extra half us for racking losses) and when
    it comes time to rack the first tine, rack a gallon onto each of your fruits.It's what I'd do
    in your sho...

    Salt will inhibit the action of some microbes. It's why you salt sourdough, so the culture
    doesn't go wild and consume everything.

    Also tipping the fermenter up at an angle a day or 2 prior to racking. You get mor compact lees
    at the liw end and a clean spot to rack from just above it. Haven't tried it myself, but
    anecdotally it ...

    The room I'm using is next to the part of our house we call the dungeon which is extremely dark
    and dank and some of that might be escaping into the next room where I keep the brew because

    Ah ha! Well, maybe, anyway. Sanitization regimen seems good. You might want to switch to a
    paper coffee filter with a rubber band to secure it. Use a new filter every brew.I was using a
    clean tea towe...

    That being said, a member who lives in another country was unable to source kt or a scoby, so
    he cultured his own. I can't remember his name, but a search should yield the thread. It was

    The two things you haven't mentioned and no one's asked: how are you sanitizing your fermenter
    and what do you cover them with while you're brewing?My first few batches all got mold. I had
    to do my be...

    If there's a viable culture, a hospitable environment and something to eat, they will pretty
    much always resume fermentation.Refrigeration won't kill most microbes, so you should be good.
