I brewed a Sam Adams Clone
Sam Adams Clone(All Grain)
10 lbs. American 2 Row Pale Malt
1 lb. Crystal 60L
1.5 oz. Spaalt 60 min.
.5 oz. East Kent for 30 min.
.5 oz. East Kent for 10 min.
1 oz. Fuggles at flameout
1.5 tsp. Irish moss
White Labs East Coast Ale Yeast WLP008
Mashed this at one hour at about 155-158 degrees I had a gravity of 1.052
I used a starter that was made with 32oz of water and 2/3 cup of dme. The starter took of great I aerated the heck our of my wort and pitched the starter while it was active. It took about 4 hours before I saw airlock activity. This was sunday. Now it's tuesday I did a hydro reading and it didn't drop very much about 1.042 or so. I'm gonna leave it in the primary for 2 weeks but the airlock activity has never been 'vigorous' It releases bubbles in bursts every 7-10 seconds or so but not a constant pop pop pop like I usually see. There are no leaks anywhere that I can tell Any speculations on why this is happening?
