Jump-starting a stalled batch  Sid Sanders
 Jul 13, 2006 15:07 PDT 

Well, ran my 1st test batch using 18lbs of dark brown sugar and the 8KG
Turbo yeast for a 25L batch. Used a vapor lock. Now, on Gert Strands
FAQ section he says there is no-way to jump start a stalled fermentation
process. I mixed in the Turbo sachet and closed the lid. Bubbled for
about 1 minute then stopped. Needless to say I was a little po'd. After
hours of still nothing I decided to mix in some Ethanol Red yeast I had
since the Turbo has nutrients. Figured I had nothing to lose. Well,
that was yesterday and it hasn't stopped bubbling vigorously and
continuously since.
