Got roughly 30 - 35 litres of this going yesterday.

6kg red and yellow plums
5kg sugar
2 sachets of ec-1118

Smells awesome today and foaming up slowly.

So keen to try this.

Does this tend to bubble away a little slower than a regular sugar wash?
First time doing plums and using ec-1118 yeast.
Was 10g yeast too little?
Should I stfu and learn some patience?

:laughing-rolling: I have only used ec1118 once and it was on grape concentrate in a wine kit. Fermented dry in about 7 days if that's any help. It may take longer with a thick pulp though not sure. I have not done much with fruit yet.. :handgestures-thumbupleft:

Cheers mate.

I think I just need to be patient. I'll leave it be and check it next Sunday.

It smells amazing.

If it works though out I'm doing it again with pears as they're cheap as around here at the moment.
