My Tropical Breeze still has a little longer to clear but is progressing nicely. It has become a very nice color. I tilted it slightly to send most of the lee's to one side.Just an update on the Breeze, it has been in process almost 2 months so far. It looks good and is almost clear. I will likely backsweeten today and then let sit until finally clear.
If I recall it seems to me there was someone sitting beside you making some strong comments about wanting more of the tropical breeze.After our latest PA'ers meet and greet, I decided to do another batch of this probably middle of February. Last batch was very well received and I was dissapointed I only made a gallon batch. I have a 7 gallon carboy, it's an odd size unless making a large batch of something. You can guess what it will be filled with. I plan on picking up 7-8 5 lb bags of tropical fruit from GFS and going from there. Last Batch I did not add an fpac and it was wonderful. I'll do the same this time. Hoping for a mid summer drinker here.
Took a taste and checked the sG. tonight.Couple years, time to crack that puppy open....
I have read for a long time about people using a heat pad without any problems. I'm sure they are fine, but I just don't trust them. Seems like they could get wet or catch fire. Maybe pinched under the bucket... OK, maybe I am just a worrier.hey guys and gals you can use a heating pad in a pinch to raise the temp. i wrap my bucket in a towel and then put the heating pad around it. put it on low for a few hrs. and there you go.works great
