So I've returned to brewing after a 12 year break and was at the "intermediate" stage of about 1/2 extract 1/2 grain. Turned out some good, tasty beers with no off flavors, everyone loved them, etc.
Fast forward to last Sunday when the culmination of over a months worth of work building my 10-11 gallon all grain brewing system came to a head when I did my first all grain batch in over 10 years. Felt suuuper good getting back into it - I did a fly sparge (with a poor mans version of a Blichman auto-sparge) and from my calculations my efficiency was around 83ish percent so my copper manifold design and sparge rate (20 lbs in about 1.3 hours) must have been decent.
After waiting a full day, fermentation took off like a rocket. It started bubbling Monday but my concern is that it hasn't slowed substancially and it's Thursday. Am I just being overly concerned? I'm used to having my past brews slow down considerably on day 2-3 and then finish up like normal. The beer smells great from the airlock so I don't think I have any contamination.
Any thoughts you guys have would be greatly appreciated.
