Still high white frothy krausen. Starting to smell like acetone. Wife is not happy.
Edit: Wife is really unhappy. We have a newborn in the house and she is losing tolerance for this project. It is in a pretty small room and it really stinks.
This is what OSHA has to say about ethyl acetate:
OSHA Permissible Exposure Limit (PEL) - General Industry
See 29 CFR 1910.1000 Table Z-1
(1,400 mg/m3) TWA
Mild narcosis at high concentrations
Mild eye, nose, and upper respiratory irritation
I have all 3 of these symptoms. The window is sealed with plastic for the winter. I guess I will have to take it off to ventilate this room.
This is what leads me to believe it is ethyl acetate:
"The volatile fatty acids produced by Brettanomyces that impact wine quality are quite diverse. The most well known to winemakers is acetic acid. This is produced during Brettanomyces growth by the oxidation of ethanol and can lead to the formation of ethyl acetate which can have an acetone type aroma".
