No, no. Read the original post. While in primary, the initial fermentation was volcanic, then dropped dead. In due time the beer was secondaried (as I do with all my beers) but that was after the primary fermentation had fallen flat on its face.
I am aware that primary and secondary fermentation are quite different of character and vigorousness. I have
done a few brews before this one, you know.
