After 1 day I needed a blow-off tube. It was going to explode. It has been 8 days and it is still very active. I haven't experienced any fermentation like this one. And I am on my 20th batch. I hope it turns out great. Can't wait.
Is this normal? How long does a Dunkel Weiss take from grain to glass? Four weeks? Six weeks?
