Indigo Fermentation – Day 2 and 3
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.
