Well the starter has been doing it's job slowly decreasing the gravity since last night, but I have not seen any of the traditional indicators of fermentation but when checking the gravity and taking a big whiff every now and then it smelled like fermentation (YUM). In another thread someone is talking about a saison contaminating their gear and the argument is if he used a brett or not and got contaminated. This got me thinking because my wife got me a kit for Christmas and it is a saison "What the Fox Saison" from Austin Homebrew. Dont judge she was trying to make a funny. So I have never brewed a with a brett it is now a learning experience. I am using WLP560 we shall see... To me

Took a final gravity reading and I am fully fermented out. I broke the Refractometer and re-taught myself how to use it. Original gravity 1.043 corrected and it finished at 1.006 corrected.

Now to let the yeast sedle and I will be golden. Here are a few pics.

On another note the boy lost 2 teeth in 2 days.
