    Update: The "beer" is still really sweet but has a bad ester taste.



    That doesn't sound good?
    Esters mean yeast, not infection. But the sweetness leans not much action?


    You are making wine. even if you used quality yeast from llavin, it would taste like estery ass for 2 months minimum with fresh pressed juice. Usually wild yeast takes at least double that time to begin even remotely tasting good and are also much slower on the overall fermentation time.

    I was expecting slow on this, but it's been nearly a week; it tastes as if all the sugars are sill there, just now with some off flavors. I'm in no rush with this. I'll let it run it's coarse (though it might end we me looking for a good price on bleach).

    I have done wild batches that seemed to sit there for 3 weeks, and then SLOWLY began their work.
    A week is nothing.

    Dang... I like the thought of peels in the starter wort, good plan Kenny, but you have been doing this since rocks were still soft so I put a lot of faith in your recommendations.
