Airlock silent, added Flavouring

SG 1.011 19.5℃

Nothing has been going on here for the last day or two, I’m pulling the lid for a gravity sample and to add the strawberry & pear flavouring sachet which came with this kit.

Instructions say to wait until the gravity is within two points of the final value (1.007, according to this page) but there’s literally no activity in the airlock at 1.011. I realise I’ve been fermenting at the skinny end of the recommended range, 20 – 25 ℃, but even so I’d expect to see some bubbles now and then.

Anyway, the flavouring is in now and tomorrow I’m bottling, adding two carbonation drops or the equivalent sugar.
