Hopsong, It might be interesting to try the same recipe with your water cut with 1/2 reverse osmosis or distilled water and see how it turns out.

Proof and Tralle hydrometer won't work, the rice wine is way too sweet to read accurately. They're meant for distilled spirits only. I tried one and it wouldn't sink into the liquid at all.

Could you post your recipe?
Mid to high 70's is way too warm for S-04 and should accelerate fermentation, not slow/stop it. Racking to secondary takes the still fermenting beer off the majority of...
