First attempt. Began 3-4 days ago. Trap has several inactive little bubbles. No noise and no continuous bubbling. Should I add another yeast culture of boiled sugar water (cooled down)? It's a blackberry mixture homegrown BTW.
If you make a yeast starter and it is fermenting vigorously add half the volume in must to it.
Wait till it ferments again and then add again half the volume in must
etc etc etc until the whole must is fermenting.
I presume acidity and SG are in the right range ???
I did not use any sulphite. I started a yeast culture a few days before hand. I covered the must after adding the yeast and syrup with the lid. My recipe actually said to cover with a clean cloth for seven days. I did not use the hydrometer.
Was there activity in the yeast started when you pitched it? What type of yeast was it and how did you make your starter? If you created a sugar medium for the started how much sugar was in how much water and did you rehydrate the yeast before you added it to the started liquid?
Sorry for all the questions but the more info we have the more people can help you.
