Indigo Fermentation – Day 2 and 3

July 31, 2009

So far there are no signs of fermentation.  The jar is looking more clear as the yeast settles to the bottom, but there is no colour change beginning (to early perhaps?).    I was dubious about it being able to ferment with the instructions said to leave the yeast and sugar working for 2 hours before mixing with the indigo/ammonia mixture.   It seems to me that it would have worked itself out!  Which I think it did.   So this morning I have added a teaspoon each of yeast and sugar to get it going.

I think I will also start another jar and try the fermentation method using madder roots and bran which is described on the Aurora Silk site.   Then I plan to order more indigo and try the other methods for a comparison.
