Krausen and hops. Completely normal. RDWHAHB.

Thank you. Now I don't have to ask next time. Much appreciated. Unfortunately no home brews until this one is all set! I had a GLBC Burning River though!

Good start, but next time less Ohio and more Michigan (Bell's, Founder's, etc.)

I'm from the U.P. so yes, I agree. New Holland brews are good too. Try their Ichabod Pumpkin Ale!

Nothing wrong. Look like hops in the krausen. I'm in Key West, but born a Yooper.

I see no foil on that starter so I assume you have an airlock on there? Ditch that and use foil next time. More oxygen = more yeast.

Just place tin foil over the opening? And yes I used an airlock on my starter.

Go Yoopers!

Yep. Sanitize a piece of foil and form it over the top of the flask loosely. Oxygen is critical for yeast growth in the early phase. Airlocks prevent that.

Dang, thanks for the info. Luckily my yeast seems to be doing a fantastic job! My starter didn't fair too badly, there looked to be plenty in there.

Next brew I'll use tin foil. Love having this forum.

It's still better than nothing and lots of people use air locks, but really ideally you'd like to have foil or foam stopper and a stir plate. Best case scenario.
