I have a 1 gallon raspberry honey fermenting now. In my previous 3 batches I used EC1118 yeast and it was pretty dramatic. In this batch I used 71B1122 and noticed that this seems to be a slower fermentation. Today is day 6 and it is fizzing and bubbling away pretty good but no cap forming like I saw in my previous batches. Just a slower fermentation with this particular yeast?

I started with a SG of 1.106 - It looks like I am right at 1.010 right now? Normal for 6 days?

Thanks everyone for your thoughts,advise, comments.

Well, actually you are at about 1.010 - can't comment on the yeast since I haven't used that. Wonderful colour on your wine!!

Typing error. Fixed it. Tks. Hey, I was in Halifax last October on a cruise. It was cold.
