I have a batch of the honey ‘shine started. I just sprinkled the yeast into the liquid. I think it has done nothing this past week because it was not “activated” prior to adding it in. My question is……do I start over or can I add some activated yeast to it and let it continue since the original yeast is probably dead. I used the fleischmanns yeast.
Thanks for the input Richard. My patience is lacking. I activated another batch of yeast per the instructions you referred to @ the clawhammer site. Added it already. Did I ruin this? My recipe is the clawhammer site’s Honey ‘shine.
It is not ruined it might just be a bit yeasty. I’d let it sit a few more days- see if you drop a few more points-
other than that just let the yeast settle and use an auto siphon and leave it behind when you transfer it to the still.
