Re: Gervin

Hi I had the same issue with gervin yeast. Spent 3weeks in the FV and still would not go below 1.028 so ended up with a sweet low alcohol wherry. I normally use SO4 which is great and quick and normally gets to my required FG I used temp control and was disappointed. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
