Thanks Denny. I just finished this batch up. Overshot the boil volume a bit and may have put too much into my 6 gal carboy when the 1L stir plate starter was pitched. I used 1450. Should I be concerned that the krausen will clog the airlock with this yeast? I don't have any stoppers that can fit a blow off tube.

I attached a picture. That's not krausen, just foam from aeration.

What do you all think? Am I going to wake up to a mess?

Edit: It's fermenting at 65F

So, as previously mentioned I boiled a little longer and little more vigourously than normal, luckily I always over sparge and aim for a 6.5 gallon into fermenter for this reason. I ended up with about....6ish, little less, and I didn't leave a drop behind this time. I wasn't able to pitch till morning, and thought it rather odd that there was this much sediment in the carboy.


Thoughts? Normal? (preferable answer, just sayin')

Success? I guess...

Man 'o man... What a process. I tried out a new 10 gal mash tun with a 'homemade' bazooka style screen in it - OYI!!! Stuck Strike & Stuck Sparge! I was about 20 minutes late draining my strike, and over an hour late by the time I had my 7 to boil. Arg! I guess it's a good thing I have 2 other tun's sitting around to save my butt. And, to boot, the transfers were a mess of something God awful & sticky. I have one pissed wife I can tell you that much.

I guess well see how it turns out. With all the BS I never cared to get an OG, so it is what it is at this point.

Happy Brewing
