fermentation

Postby cmcd » Thu Oct 06, 2011 8:49 am

I got a couple of buckets of California juice last weekend. We let them come to room temperature, added yeast. We bundled them up and put them on a heating pad, it has been four days and neither bucket has stared to ferment yet. I'm starting to think something is wrong. Should I stir the juice, add a yeast nutrient or just be patient?

I'm out of the country so my girlfriend is handling the wine this year. I got her to taste the juice, she says it's pretty sweet little bit fizzy. Sounds like it's fermenting seems kinda slow. Should we try stirring?

Stirring and keeping it warm. It would not hurt to add some yeast energizer to be safe but it probably is not necessary.
