The prior day saw nothing but frustration. My yeasts did not start. The morning after, I crawl from bed. I have few options if nothing changed. I can siphon the yeasts out and start with new ones. But that would risk oxidation. I could enjoy seven gallons of grape juice or just toss the lot. And then…

Patience (and a night of negligence) pays.

Next, stir and measure, twice daily.
