Comments

Honey used:

  • 9 lbs of Clover
  • 6 lbs of Wildflower

Added 1 tablespoon of yeast energizer at pitching. Will add energizer at periodic intervals throughout fermentation.

Fermentation seems to have stalled at 1.036. Added a fresh charge of yeast and energizer. If that doesn't work, I'll need to check the PH to see if it's too low/high and adjust accordingly (October 10, 2010).
