100% Juice Pineapple Ferment


It’s actually 100% pineapple! Not a cocktail or mostly apple plus of pineapple mix or juice-like drink.

25g of sugar should be good enough. And we’ll try the 71B yeast (1/4 tbsp @ 98F) for this one. One of these days I’ll successfully get to A/B the yeasts (thanks for nothing lemonade)…

Roughly 1.044 on the ol hydrometer.

Check the reading.. Uhm, 1.000?? Okay that’s not actually crazy considering it started at 1.044. Sitting at 5.78%.

Very scudsy too. It had pushed up and out the airlock as well. Very very active. And it sure doesn’t taste like pineapple juice anymore – or maybe it does but more like the rind, no sugar to help it out.

Wednesday October 2 Update

First time siphoning, as there’s a lot of sediment. That shot out way faster than expected. Sp.gr. reading is .097 or so. This ABV calc says 9.71%? Hmm.. Doesn’t taste like it.. It also says that if the Sp.gr. reading is 1 then the ABV goes down to 5.74%. Pretty drastic. Possible misread. Or maybe I need a better hydrometer.
