I read that it is good to invert the sugar to make the fermentation go a little faster and the taste becomes better when the sugar is inverted.
The PH needs to be 4.0 or lower.
I can add DAP and regular yest nutrients before adding the yeast.
How much DAP, Yeast, and nutrients out of pounds of sugar?
I do not want to follow the recipe by adding tomato paste and fertilizer.
Could you guys help me with this?

The K1-v1116 was not working at first. I waited an hour and it was bubbling like crazy.
It was like this for two and a half days.
Today its the 4th day fermenting and it is bubbling very very slow. I read that it is recommended to let it rest for two days when it stop bubbling so everything settles at the bottom.
For the K1-v1116 i used Fermax as DAT. That is what they recommended me at this brewery place. I will try will DAP next time i ferment to see the big difference (if there is any)
I will also use Bakers yeast in another bash with DAP.
Well it's all about trying, I'm new at this.
I will write more in a few days.
Did you use any citric acid to bring down the ph?

Yes i did, i took it down to PH3.8 since the PH for rum has to be 4.0 or lower.
So i went with 3.8
Right now it is bubbling veeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeery slow. I'm sure it will be ready for Sunday/Monday.
What size batch & how much acid?

The bubbles are very slow, a bubble comes out every 33 second (average)
Does it has to come to a complete stop?
