Carrot Wine, Day Two

Okay, added the yeast today. Also added the nutrient. The brand I am using called for a teaspoon per gallon, instead of a 1/2 teaspoon. It's frothing away nicely. I am worried that I put too much orange zest in though. The stuff is starting to smell like sour orange juice.

That's probably how it's supposed to smell. "Fermentation" is a fancy way of saying "controlled rotting".

See, I always thought of it as a fancy way of saying "tiny plants are burping and peeing in your flavored water." But that's just me.
