That's what has me scratching my head...yes. The airlock has very little action, it is a simple concentrate , sugar and a yeast packet.

what temps did you take your readings at each time? Did you take your first hydro sample at 98f?

No, I let it cool down to 70, the second reading was also taken at 70 ( room temp). It has an almost frothy feel to it when you take a drink.

If you are using the standard triple scale hydrometer, I would bet that you read the wrong scale on one of your readings. Or you had too big a "sample" and weren't seeing straight. Take another measurement to confirm which is correct.

Do the carbonation bubbles affect readings? I was making a skeeter pee that went from a 1060 to a 1066 to a 1070 on consecutive days at 68 degrees, starting 3 days after pitching. I could taste the slight alcohol taste so I know it is working... I just ignored it and let it keep working. In a month i am sure it will work it's self out.

That is what I was wondering, it has a bit of carbonation feel to it, can taste a bit of alcohol to it. I am also not sure how the yeast I used would affect flavor etc.
