Day 3.5 update.
Decided to taste test - estimated alcohol content between 10 and 15% after only 3.5 days (how is this possible guys?!). This is mainly down to the smell - it has a similar alcoholic smell of cheap white wine and you can taste strong amounts of alcohol along side a relatively sweet apple juice.
I've decanted/racked into two 1.25 litre bottles, leaving a fair wack of sediment in the original 3 litre container (which contained approx 2.7 litres). I've put this in the freezer and it will be consumed tonight - about 2 litres @ ~10% is enough to get a buzz on.
The second batch will continue to ferment though I feel that it will have to reach its peak soon as I though the yeast will die off after say 15% - bubbles are still forming though and my room smells like a winery.
I'll report back in if anyone cares (does anyone care? I thought there would be more feedback on these forums...) tomorrow to let you know how it went. Hopefully good times and not extended periods of sickness or more trouble.
What could possiby go wrong
