So you are not using the slurry?


I don't have anything going to make a slurry from. I will be using a starter as IQwine recommended.

My melomel done fememented over again, I extracted some of the melomel and added it to my starter for the "pee". I just added my first 4 oz of Pee Must to the starter about 10 minutes ago, thos little yeasties are going nuts over this stuff. I have about 3/8 of foam ontop of the starter right now. Will continue adding Pee Must until it is time for the FD meeting then see what goes when I get home. May pitch it tonight if it is going well enough.

Thoughts?

:br mind was racked to a carboy last night and it is bubbling away. Will be bottling the riesling this weekend, so I think I will start another skeeter pee with an elderberry slurry.

Mmmmmm Elderberry wine. Haven't had that in ages. Need to figure where to get some of those for a batch. Buddies of mine in Ft Hill, PA make Elderberry wine that was delicious.

Well, I'm just going to have you up here drinking some elderberry wine. Out of 18#, I get 12 gallons of wine. 6 gallons of a full body and 6 gallons of a blush. It is very good. :b

I can only imagine....


I checked on the PEE again this am, a nice frothy head has formed on the must. Gave it a quick stir to keep everything going.

My PEE is really frothy and that's not a personal problem that needs checked. It really is foamy.....Can smell the alcohol forming though so that's a good thing. SG tonight was down to 1.062, I'm guessing sometime tomorrow or Friday I'll add the other bottle of lemon, should be to 1.050 before the weekend.

Doug: Dont forget to add your nutrient and energizer too.



What yeast did you use? I have made two batches and neither one was foamy. The only foamy thing I ever had was Wade's chocolate strawberry port and I used Lavlin D-47.

EC 1118 it looks like lemon meringue pie when it's going well.

As IQwine said, I too used EC 1118 and it does look like meringue from a pie.

I checked the sg again last night it was down to 1.04 from 1.05 in the morning. Didn't check today, will likely transfer to carboy tomorrow sometime then patiently wait.
