Day ten - time to rack to the carboy! Nothing too much of note here. After I started the first step, fermentation was said to start within two days. After two days, I saw no action in the airlock and got a little concerned. I pulled the lid up and saw many bubbles rising (phew!), and took a reading that confirmed things were under way. After that the bubbling / fermentation was pretty steady / active, right up until tonight.
A few other notes:
- it smells a lot like cider at the moment
- it leaves the primary fermenter much cleaner than beer does (see for yourself in the pics)
- specific gravity reading today was 1.004
Phase Three coming up on the 28th!
