I liked it & took a swing at it. ITs 1 am & am not sure if I:m getting fermentation. I finished up about 6 pm. so far no foam or nothing. I've only used dried yeast this is my first live. I kept it in the fridge. I took it out of the fridge & right into the fermentor

about 52 degrees is that too cold

...he was a member here once upon a time.

52 is way too cold, and 7 hours is WAY too soon. Let it warm up to the upper 60s and keep it there. It may take a day or so before fermentation kicks in.

Also, all yest is alive, this is the first liquid you have used. Typically, depending on the OG, you want to make a starter for liquid yeasts 2-3 days before hand. If not, take it out of the fridge at least 3 hours prior to pitching. Since you didn't do these things, it may take even longer for the fermentation to start. Give it at least 48 hours before you worry about it.

It's good stuff, I liked it.

Don't drink any for atleast 3 weeks in the bottle, specially if you carb with DME. You'd be suprised at how much better it is at 3 weeks than 2 weeks.

Yeah, I made it more than two years ago, and even though it sounded good it wasn't my thing. My best friend liked it ok, so she finished it off. It took her about 6 months, but she did drink it all eventually.

I think that it's way too sweet for my taste- I tried it several times, but kept getting "cream soda with beer" taste. I think some people have loved it, though.
