Re: Wineos Plain Ol Sugar Wash

i would just like to add that i used 50grams of bakers yeast to find out 3 weeks later im only down to 1040 about 5% abv so i pitched another cup of bakers yeast and it's bubling like crazy again. So half a cup or even 1 cup will really speed things up and is very important.

thanks.
