I smacked mine in the car on the way home from the LHBS, it was good and ready to go by the time I started brewing.....two batches from this pack so far and both have been pretty quick starters.

My Dead Guy clone has been going since Thursday. I checked it last night and there was a ton of activity swirling around in there. I didn't use any wheat, so there hasn't been any killer krausen.

Lorena, thanks for the recipe again. I'm excited about how it'll turn out. This one already has uber-trub going on in it so a secondary is absolutely necessary.

Well, jeez, now I'm going to brew my Dead Guy clone, too. There aren't any left of the original batch. Unfortunately, (or maybe fortunately) I haven't had any great starts with pacman. I thought it was just the first pack, but I made a starter with the one I just bought. It was dated for September, so I thought a starter was a good idea. It seemed to go some but still not great. I"m stepping it up a tad today, adding some more wort to hopefully get quite a bit to pitch. I'm going to wait for my starter to be done, then I'll brew.

The Walker's IPA that I pitched my washed Wyeast 1056 into is going like a locomotive right now. I love the sound of fermentation

OK, right now the my Dead Guy clone is acting strange.

The fallen yeast look like aquarium gravel, sitting on the bottom. On various points on the sides of the bottle, there are yeast clusters. Yeast balls are swimming and dancing near the top.
