It’s definitely getting that good sour aroma but it’s not quite there. I’m suspecting by tomorrow we should be good to go. However it does take a good 5-7 days. As you can see a lot less bubbles than the previous days.
Now from the time I stuck the spoon in to the time it was creamy from stirring was maybe a minute, if that. That’s also another indicator that it’s close to being ready.
