Ehle had finished the first fermentation and there was a lot of icky foam drifting on it, so decided to rack, filter (as well as possible) and measure. Whoa.

Grav: 1.000
Alc: 11%

I had no idea it could go this damn fast, that's in under 2 weeks!
I took it off a lot of cacao sludge, added 600 gr honey and about 600 ml water to bring it up to 1.024 (at 1.000 it wasn't going to do anything anymore). When I come back from holiday Ehle will go live at my neighbour's, who has promised a space below the desk in his spare room where it can live for about a year.

I also racked Alexis, but forgot to take readings.
