I made a batch of edworts apfelwein on 06/04/09 and the OG was 1.064. On 6/14/2009 my gravity was 1.010 and I took another sample today and my gravity read 1.064 wtf? I know it fermented and I know I read my hydrometer right. I don't know what is going on. Anybody have any answer I am baffled, I tasted it and it was quite good.

Sounds like someone sneaked in, in the middle of the night and added a whole lot of stuff to your fermenter, either that or one of your readings was wrong.

Fill your test tube more, the hydro was sitting on the bottom.
