Learned today that champagne yeast (1 packet) is NOT enough to get a batch of prison hooch/meant to be hard root beer fermented. Took a sample today with all intentions of adding the root beer extract, only to find gravity had dropped maybe 2 points in a week. And this is in the 72 degree average house, not the ferment fridge. Arrrrgh. Fortunately had a packet of Safale-05 handy, dropped that in and less than an hour later it's going great guns. Might not turn out great, but dammit I'm going to see this thing through.
