1 week into a gallon kit of Chardonnay. I'm using a plastic bucket that has almost a 2gal. capacity. According to instructions I topped of to the 1 gal level. That left what seemed like more space than there should have been, but proceeded anyway. I have seen little if any activity in the air lock. When I looked in the bucket there was no action at all, no bubbles, etc. Today I checked the SG and it was 1.02. The beginning SG was 1.082. I don't know if I need to encourage the fermentation or just let it be and wait another week before I do the next step. ???
