My SP is chugging along on the third day, should I be whipping air into it daily to degas?

On a degassing note: is there something I don't know? I put my degassing wand connect to my drill in my carboy, did a small burst, 2-3 seconds, to see what would happen. The resulting explosion ended with about a 3-4 inch geyser spouting out of my carboy and 1-2 liters of 1.030 Skeeter Pee on the floor.

Did I miss a step somewhere along the line?

Don't degas until its ferments out. .999 or lower

Those look great! What did you do to flavor them?

At bottling time I added 2 packs of koolaid to 5 litres of pee. Adds a great flavour and very simple.

Oh, ok. I guess this was the part of the recipe where I added the second round of lemon, nutrient, etc.

"Periodically check the gravity. When it gets down to around 1.050, add the other 3 tsp of nutrient the second tsp of energizer, and the last bottle of lemon juice; vigorously mix it in. Don’t be afraid to introduce some oxygen to the mix at the same time."

So, "vigorously mixing" doesn't mean with a degassing wand?

Oops. No use a whisk or something like it and just stir the top kinda. It's just to introduce a little more oxygen too keep the ferment going. A wand would bring up all the co2 in the solution.

It's not to degas as much as it is to add oxygen. If its going real strong you could skip the whipping. I whip it until its dropping a fair amount of sg a day. Then let it run its course. The oxygen is just helping them yeasties stay strong.
