I brewed an OLD ale as my second beer on saturday OG 1.076 . I went out that night and got home and saw a bubble and got excited. I wake up the next morning and Im laying in bed, why dont I hear a bubble?, I thought. I look at my carboy and beer is flooded through the airlock and fermentation went crazy through the night. I ran to Lowes and bought some tubing to run from the carboy to a glass of water. Fermentation activity was fast for the next couple days. It quickly slowed down afterwards. So now on wednesday i get a bubble every minute and that seems WAY to slow for being not even a week in. So I take a gravity reading and I get 1.020. And Im like... what????already???
So more details on the brew...
It was a partial mash extract brew
I used Safeale S04 dry yeast
Fermentation temp was a little high 76 degrees
I took a sip from the hydrometer tube and it wasnt disgusting but not all that great either. Malty and yeasty.
