I never took an initial, but can someone tell me more or less what the final gravity of a JOAM should be when the recipe is followed to the letter?

Mine usually start around 1.125 and finish around 1.025, although I've had a few that finished a bit higher than that.

Thanks, I doubt it's finished at this point, but it IS clearing and the activity has diminished a lot. The fruit is still floating but I figure when my thief arrives this week I'll take a measurement. I'm a little worried that if it ended this quickly I will have off flavors. the only thing I am not able to adhere to at the moment is temperature and it has been in my dining room which gets to highs of 75-78 on any given day.

Then you should be fine. If I remember correctly, bread yeast in jAOM does best at between 70 and 80.

Trust in the Yeast. For ye shall know the ways of fermentation and the truth shall set you free! <grin>


Sounds like you're doing everything you're supposed to. Hang in there. The only ingredient needed now is time.

Bloody rubbish. If the equipment is all sanitised then take the reading and then put it back into the main body.......

It's not bloody beer, where you might have to be a bit anal.........:mad:

Here it is. Looks like it has a ways to go yet. Don't know that it's going to make it.

I can't get over how much I like it.

IMHO. The original recipe 'to the book' will finish at 1040-1050. I don't like it that high so shoot for 1015-1025 much like CG.
It's JAO. Wait until it stops and drink it.
If you like it: bonus!
Take a gravity reading then for future reference, however don't use gravity to know where it will finish, especially if you didn't take an initial gravity.

Yeah. I think so.
I wrote it so long ago, and it doesn't show up on tapatalk (mobile app) which is the only thing I use to check the forum.

Isn't that a revelations reference?

Yeah.
Long story short, my nick translates literally from Indonesian as "Sickly Pale Horse"
"And lo I saw a pale horse, upon him sat death and all of hell followed with him"
The handle was acquired in the early days of the net when 'hell's Angel' 'Angel of Death' and other dark terms were fashionable.
I chose the more obscure 'Pale Horse' literally representing 'bringer of death' which was later translated by friends online when i was practisjng my Indo; into the unique, less garish and (I think) cool sounding handle I now use.

(Yes, that was the short version.)

The signature merely says:
"The pale horse rides again"
It's a sig I adopted when I renewed activity on various forums. (I translated here into something more meadly - as my lineage hails from there abouts)

Sickly pale horse translates to "ceffyl golau afiach" in welsh. What a diverse and interesting bunch of people in this forum! Long may it continue.

Nice! Thanks for that. I've often thought of putting up a Basque sig for the meady connections (what with it being old and all) but despite being ethnically Basque I can't speak a word of it.

To the Internet!

I speak not a word of welsh either! I used and trusted google translate!

Wow... Just realised how far OT this thread had gone!

Well, I kinda hijacked my own thread didn't I? :D
