Default What is this???

I went out to my garage today and saw a 'swirling' of particles in the brew. I had never seen it before and was curious what the hell was going on. It started fermenting in less than 12 hours, causing me to think that I am watching the yeast at work. Today is the second day of fermentation. Any thoughts?

BTW, how can I post the image on here--its asking for an http address...

You are witnessing fermentation!

Don't stare too long, it might hypnotize you.

Fermentation rules!! Yes Im up to 7 fermenters, 9 if you cound the two plastic ones I started with, I just use one of them for a bottling bucket now.

I love using glass cause you can see whats going on in there, even if they are a little more difficult to clean.

Welcome to the adiction
