Default Amazing Speed

So yesterday I Did a Counter top paritial mash and all went well! Even did a full boil on my stove top, took a while to get going but I have a 10 gallon pot so it fit over to gas burners. Anyway i pitched the dry yeast at 1 45 ish i would say maybe a little later and tucked the fermenter away in the corner. Well a 5 pm later that day, yes 3 hours 15 mins later, i was getting 1 bubble every 3 secs now today at 6 am im get 2 every second. Man i've never seen yeast act so quick!! hope it turns out good!!

I hope you have a blow off tube? It can get so bad it blows off the air lock in the middle of the night.

Try Danstar Nottingham.

It's not big and it's not clever but I've had bubbles within an hour and hit FG target within 24 hours.

Dry yeast kicks. I had a similar experience with a pale ale still in the carboy, with a blowoff tube there was so much foam in the bucket (Star San) the foam almost ran over the bucket. It was attenuated within a day and a half.
