It sank some, but there was still a layer of bubbles in the bottom of the glass when I was done. Very gratifying.
This is the first batch we’ve had trouble with. We ordinarily make a very watery syrup, pour that in the bottling bucket, and use the output from the siphon to swirl it into the wort. This time, we overcooked our syrup, and it got a little treacly, so it didn’t mix as well. Hopefully they’re mostly like this, and not so much explosive or flat.
In other news, my floating hydrometer project is coming along nicely. The software and electrical engineering parts are nearly done—it’s currently sending reports from my workbench test setup to my workbench laptop, which is running the web app portion for testing.
Still to come is the actual physical engineering part, but I can’t get going on that until my various approximately-27mm plastic cylinders arrive, and they’re all literally on a slow boat from China.
