The second one made from concentrate only is still in the primary, still bubbling well but just beginning to taper off. Seems like the ferment is less active in general, despite the OG being higher; certainly it's less foamy than the other batch. It's also lighter in hue than the other batch was in the primary. Will move to secondary when the original batch is bottled.

Seems to be going well!

Just checked the second one...SG is now at 1.012. It's not quite as tasty as the other batch...but I think it's just a yeasty flavor that is bugging me, and that's easy enough to get rid of. Will bottle the first batch and rack this second batch soon.
