Quickly fermenting

Category: Bitter 2 — Josh @ 5:09 pm

This ale is quickly fermenting along. Krausen has falled and the yeast is happily munching away. After some research, the sulfur smell is related to the hops variety that I used as well as the yeast strain that is used. I guess I hit on the right combination. H2S odors take time to fade, and I noticed that it has already has some from this morning. The current smell coming from the beer is not quite as pungent (although still undesireable). I am thinking of removing the Blow off tube tonight and installing the airlock.
