Ok so based on the school of thought that the longer you leave things the better, i left my wows in the shed for a few months in the demi john (ok so i forgot about them again) today i went to bottle them and thought i'd check the abv, and to my surprise it's 1.000 which is the same as my tap water give or take. Have i done something wrong or do i need a new hydrometer? Both wows one made with wgj with apple and elderflower and one is rgj with pomegranate. Any ideas?
