I've been brewing beer for 3 almost 4 years. I know how to read my hydrometer. I made a DB blueberry/cranberry. I know I got a wee bit impatient and racked to carboy at 1.000. I didn't add anything, just wanted to rack off the fruit and lees. I figured it might go ahead and drop a few more points. That was on1-11. By the way, I used my Allinonewinepump. I also put on a headspace eliminator. There was co2 coming out. Yesterday and this morning I had to vacuum it out as the ball was inflated. Tonight when I get home, inflated again. This time im smart enough to check at. 1.040!!! How did it go from 1.000 to 1.040? I'm sure I didn't misread my hydrometer. And yes, I put an airlock back on.
