    Default JAO BOMM questions

    I started a JAO BOMM a week ago, and made some assumptions based on the long forum threads about BOMM's. I'm hoping that I'm not screwing up -

    Did the fruit and spices in the JOA version recipe. Not realizing that it's an all natural thing as far as nutrients, I also added Ferm-o and the potassium bicarbonate (3/4 TSP worth for a gallon, which I read later was a typo). OG was 1.132 and after 7 days was down to 1.080 and I added another dose of the Ferm-o.

    Been degassing (stirring) daily, and it's certainly fermenting up a storm.

    So, my questions are - should I continue adding Ferm-o at the next break (should be 1.044), or should I quit that? And will 3/4 TSP of bicarbonate give me any issues later?

    Thanks

    You don't need to add anything else. It should finish in the 1.03-1.02 range. The additions you've already done won't hurt anything. Just let it hit stable gravity.
