Or like Huster said its done.Only time Ive gotten fast ferments with molasses was in hot weather.But even then Id let it go long as it would cause I prefer my molasses fermented completely out.I like distillers yeast best in molasses

I read a molasses recipe on here somewhere that said to throw in a sliced orange. I've never fermented molasses before so I thought I'd try. It's to the point now where I can actually smell the orange through the strong molasses smell. I hope I can get around to running it before this coming weekend is out.
Should I rack off and let settle before going straight into the still? I'm kind of thinking I should.

My wife came out and said she actually liked the way it smelled and told me not to make "that corn stuff again" because it stank. Women what do they know.

My question is what should I do now??? Let it sit until it completely stops bubbling then pitch more EC1118 if the gravity isn’t where I want??? Pitch a higher tolerance yeast???? Suggestions are welcome.
