When I felt the flask it was warm to the touch. When I got home tonight 4-5 hours later the flask was already at high krausen. The liter removed from the flask and stored in the fridge had a lot of yeast at the bottom of the mason jar. Something happened that produced a lot of yeast fast, but is the yeast any good?
I poured some tap water into a jar to test "warm to the touch" I am going to have to guess it is at least 85 degrees.
