So I put a 200L wash of grape juice concentrate in the fermenter and pitched it three days ago but am seeing no real activity...
I diluted the concentrate to an SG of 1.097, added about 80g of DAP and then re-hydrated 80g of EC 1118 in go ferm protect evolution and pitched.
Nothing much is happening, I can see a couple of bubbles if I stare really hard for a few minutes but the gravity hasn't moved at all.
I'm tempted to re-pitch with some more EC 1118 but I just feel there is something that I'm missing like the pH. I didn't check or adjust the pH as I never have and haven't had this problem before and whilst I haven't used EC 1118 before I ready that it is effective across a broad range of pH.
Any help or pointers is much appreciated as this is my first time fermenting fruit and using EC 1118 and I don't want it all to spoil.
