So last night I added some DAP and crushed up some B vit and it's perked up a bit this morning. Slowest ferment I've ever had The smell is a concern but I'll ride it out and decide later whether to run it or not. Normally I'd take a taste, however ... . I remember another little rye ferment smelling like this half way through and then changing by the end. Hopeful but doubtful. bd.
How'd it smell goin in... the dunder of course! Was it aged long... first or second stage? Did you make any other mods to your regular rum wash other than the dunder? Did you allow the yeast to take before adding the dunder, or was it all set off at the same time? What was your expected abv yield from the wash? Real interested to hear the final results.
