First batch of SP is underway!!!!! Specific gravity was 1.068 and I added 1/2 cup of sugar. Specific gravity after that was 1.074. I don't have a slurry so I am using a starter. Wish me luck!!!!
My wife loves this hobby that I"ve started!!!
Good luck, I've never started in a carboy on SP.
you better keep an eye on that or you will have a good chance of having a volcanco
Julie Here is what I have done!
There is a video on the skeeter pee Facebook page. The guy's name is Fo and he started his in a carboy. He didn't seem to have a problem. We will see though. Thanks!! I will keep the progress updated.
Lol. I know. I have already warned my wife that there is the chance it might get a little "active". I put a towel under it. I just hope it doesn't "project" itself past the towel. She won't be too happy.
Get a big garbage bag and set the carboy in it. just pull the sides of the bag up a few inches and if it volcanos on you it should be an easy cleanup. Arne.
Thanks Arne. I believe I am going to transfer my SP from the carboy to a bucket right before I pitch the starter. That should keep me out of the doghouse. Lol
Here is a little pic of my starter about 1 hour after I pitched in the EC-1118 yeast. Looks like the yeast is liking it so far.
I took a little video of it, but I can't post it here for some reason.
Hey Julie, how did the skeeter pee/ muscadine turn out? Was it red or black muscadines? I plan on using the slurry from my firsy batch of muscadine wine this winter. I will be making white wine.
they were red muscadine and it turned out very good, the color is light red. Do you know you can freeze your slurry?
