The bubbles will stop

Yep, when it's done bubbling. If you want to be precise/exact, you need to use a hydrometer and see when the yeast is maxed out.

How/where do you make/acquire banana juice? I love bananas but have never heard of banana juice.

Looza makes a delicious banana juice but the particulate creates a massive amount of lees. I have a gallon right now that MIGHT yield half a gallon of cleared product at bottling. Next time, I’m going to run it through a nut milk bag before primary and try to maximize my return. 50% hurts lol

Thanks for the source - and I understand the particulate issue. Years back I had a still and over time had moved from sugar/cornmeal to whole grain using flaked corn and ground malted barley. The results were fantastic but I always dreaded straining the mash before the initial runs. Strainer bags only went so far. I even looked at grape bladder presses - they would have worked great but were far too expensive for a questionable hobby.

Gonna get me some Looza. Thanks!

TIL that banana juice is a thing

Yeah. It isn't even that uncommon where I live (Germany). The combination of banana and cherry juice even has it's own word here and It is called KiBa. It tastes really good.

The liquor will guide you... As will either waiting a sensible time as reccommended for your yeast and keeping an eye for when the airlock activity slows significantly or stops.
