Fermentation update

Category: ESB 3 — Josh @ 2:39 pm

Yesterday around 12:00 pm, fermentation was beginning to take off, with CO2 bubbling out and foam starting to push out of the air lock.

Today at 12:00 pm there is massive airlock activity. It sounds like someone blowing through the BOT into the bucket of sanitizing solution. Foam has been pushing out of the airlock and the sanitizing solution is is amber colored. Fermentation is moving along and looks normal. It is fun to watch the yeast clumps get carried up in the carboy by the tiny CO2 bubbles.

Miftik took some pictures of the brewing process. I am going to post a few soon.
