Yes it had a very active fermentation after about 18 hours(this is the first brew where i have done a full 60min boil) and it went crazy,i have never had that much krausen before and had to keep changing the airlock....must get a blow-off tube
Volume wise i had just over 5 UK gallons(including pitching about a pint of proofed yeast ).
Is it worth kegging or leaving for a while(i am going away for 8 days tomorrow afternoon)?
