    Default Not frothing.. but bubbling

    Stasis, right now Iím just letting it work itís way out. I wonít re-chem it. I donít want Weird flavors. I checked SG again today at 72 F it was 1.004 so itís still going . Iíll let them do their thing and then rack off of them once stable.

    Edit:
    Tasted it too, it was yummy!

    For those who have fought for it, freedom has a flavor the protected will never know.

    You should try to rack under this. Is the oil food safe/grade? I'm not sure why you would need to do this method anyway?
    7 out of 4 people have a hard time using their hydrometer!

    Why were you pumping out the CO2? The CO2 is good because it prevents oxidation (especially in melomels), I would have left it alone. If you're trying to de-gas there are other ways to do it.
