So I ended up making this kit and I have a blow hose hooked up but it doesn't appear I needed one. Brewed in a 6 gallon bucket last night and as of today the hose is bubbling about once every 10 seconds. Did I possibly do something wrong? Temp is at 63 degrees.

I used the 1028 Wyeast activator pack. As of this morning the temp was still at 63 degrees and it was bubbling like crazy. About once every second. Still no krausen coming out of the blow hose, but I'll take that as a good thing lol.

I brewed this on December 1st, in the secondary still...dry hopped with some zythos. Gonna bottle it up next week.

I used white labs 007 dry English yeast and it definitely needed that blowoff hose

I'm on day 5 and just changed to an airlock. Bubbles have slowed to about one every 7 seconds. Does this seem normal? Temp has been consistent at 63 degrees. Did you guys rack to secondary or keep it in primary the whole time?

I kept mine in the primary.

after a few weeks just do a gravity check.

When it stays steady for 3-4 days you should be good to go.

what was your og?

Og was 1.062. I usually rack to secondary after a week or so, but this may be the batch where I finally do away with secondary. Seems like more and more brewers are doing this as well. I will test the gravity after 7 days and see where I'm at.
