This is the second ferment you have had problems with. And have posted a what's wrong? thread for them. Do you think maybe you should do some more research on the subject? We have some real easy recipes That Work here on HD. Use one of them to learn with. Take better notes along the way. Like ingredients and the amounts, temps, and starting SG and finished SG. And yes learn to read the SG side of the scale. Then if you do have a problem with it. Not likely if you use a proven tried and true recipe. You can give that info up in the first post. So it doesn't have to be drug out of you 3 or 4 posts later.
Like I said I'm not trying to be a jerk. But if you had done the proper research. You would have distilled a couple of ferments in the time you have wasted with just throwing stuff together. This is not a hobby that you can just read a little and do it. Or you will be on here posting more I need help threads then I got it right threads.
Call me a jerk or what ever you want. But please do some more research. Read read and read some more.
I appreciate the criticism .. Really . I started a new wash at 12% potential alcohol and spring water .. It has a good Krausen and seems to be getting dryer by the day thanks guys . I do beileve I need to get a reverse osmosis filter for my tap
