Put a ginger beer on last night
Coopers ginger beer lme
500g castor sugar
500g raw sugar
500g dextrose
Cascade finishing hops

Did a wheat beer at the same time...

Woke up and wheat beer is bubbling nicely...
Ginger beer...nothing

It's been 10hrs in fermenter
Did a hydro test on ginger beer and it hasn't moved..

Shall I leave it longer and hydro tomorrow?
I do have more yeast here, if I have no reaction by or change in hydro reading could I re-pitch or am I waisting my time?

Did you add yeast?
Seriously, don't start worrying for at least 48 hours. Most of my brews are fermenting after 18 hours, but I've had several that took longer.

Cheers mate
Yeah I just saw no sign of it doing anything...
Beer I've done..ginger beer, this is the 1st
Hahaha think I added yeast, pretty damn sure...had a few before/while/after hahaha

Question though, is ginger beer ment to ferment quicker or is that variable?
