It is reacting to the changes in temparature and off gassing more than likely. is gravity still at .996?

My last batch of pee really seemed to hold a bunch of CO2 in suspension. I thought I'd never get the gas out of it.
Try de-gassing it well

how long does this stuff take?

like, from mixing it up to drinking it.
I've turned out batches in a month that were ok but I think 6 to 8 weeks is better. I get three racks in instead of 2 and get rid of the co2 better.

sweet. I was wanting to make some and I wanted to know if it would be workable to have it ready for hot summer days here in Texas.

If I started it now it'd be great by summer.

Is it necessary to wait after adding the K-meta, sorbate and clearing compounds? Can I add sugar once it drops clear (after racking)?

i degassed it again but the gravity was like 990 so it had either been working or the change was because it was colder; so i went ahead and sweeten it its still looks like it s working a little time will tell i did take 2 bottles out and tried them this weekend this is some good stuff definity going to make more
