Ten Years After. Ha ha that’s a band us old farts are familiar with.

But 24 hours after pitching the reconstituted yeast it’s git a nice little cap and lot of fermentation going on. The little taste I got on my pinky finger yesterday was good.

So I guess when stored in cool conditions 10 years might actually work. Kind of like that jar of pickles you find on the shelf in grandmas root cellar.

We are back to Florida on Sunday, but looks like I might have my daughter hooked on the “hobby”

AND she has better equipment than I do now.

The 10 year old kit is doing super from what I can tell over facetime.

it’s getting it’s first racking from secondary tonight.
my daughter was going to stir it and add the fining packet but I said nope, don’t do it. There was maybe 3/4 an inch of lees on the bottom. It was not cloudy at all that i could see. It looked very dark,so hard to tell over zoom. It won’t be going into bottles any time soon so I assured her it will probably get clear all on its own (P-word) sitting in that carboy.
looked like final SG was 0.998 or 0.99
dont know how much gassing action there was. She hasn’t been checking on it at all and has one ofthose 3 piece bubbler that are harder to tell what going on.

so far a success.
