Yeah you're not kidding. Out of 3 brews I have never seen it. This 4th being a Hefe and using a starter it's still there on day 10.

My last batch was the first time I pitched directly onto the yeast cake...I thought something was wrong because of how fast and active the fermentation was

I was using an airlock and plastic pail fermenter...and it did clog the airlock. But, a quick cleaning and sanitizing and it was OK after that. I might have to think about getting a 6.5 gallon carboy and blow off tube.

Going to try and wash the yeast this weekend after moving to a secondary...first time...keeping fingers crossed! Be nice to be able to save a few bucks there!
