Evaluation

  • Bubbled over during third day of fermentation. Too full both buckets - add less! And maybe too much yeast.
  • Fermented 2 weeks longer than intended, 5 weeks total. Did it hurt?
  • Taste from post-fermentation, pre-fnish (during bottling): From big bucket, seems sweet. Not a lot of body. Very weak? Nice smell. From small bucket: Something's wrong. Bad smell - vinegarish/cider. Two main reasons/suspects:
    • Bubbling over during fermentation, couldve caught a bacteria.
    • Air-locks lost tops around 3 weeks into fermentation. Could've caught something through (Morten thinks that;s unlikely, there was starsan in the airlock)
