A few weeks ago, we made a 5 gallon batch of a generic hefeweizen, with the intent of adding Lilikoi to it after primary fermentation.
The initial fermentation went as expected, VERy active, stuff flowing from the BOT for 2 days. We let it sit in the carboy for 2 weeks (had to wait for the other batch of unrelated beer to get bottled before we had a carboy available for racking).
We racked the hefe into a second carboy, topped it off with a bit of water, and added 3 cups of pasturized Lilikoi. We had prepared the Lilikoi previously by juicing it through a dish towel and freezing it. We pasturized it at 160-170 degrees for half an hour.
We expected, and research led us to expect, another very active, but short-lived, fermentation. What we got was just a few bubbles. We stirred the beer a few times across the following week, but still never got much activity.
At the end of 1 week in the secondary, I pulled a sample and tested the gravity. 1.010. Which isn't very useful, since I didn't take any readings to compare it to earlier. It tasted like a slightly green Lilikoi hefeweizen, though.
Tomorrow will mark 2 weeks in the secondary. Assuming the gravity is steady, shall I rack, prime, and bottle? Why didn't we get the explosion refermentation?
