8 days in its clearing up and still barely bubbling. Gravity is at 1.011. Tasted like beer!

So I popped a few of these open at a week in the bottle with an extra 24 hour fridge time. Nice champagne cork pop from the 16oz flip top. Decent carbonation, not all the way there but close! Tasted pretty good too, I'm trying to resist drinking them all now!

After bottling this batch we brewed up the second half of the kit and pitched harvested and washed yeast from the first batch.

The ferment was much more vigorous and faster than the first batch, peaking a few hours sooner and with quite a bit more blow off. What concerns me is it is now day 8 and the krausen has completely fallen to show clear beer on top. It took the first batch 15 days to reach this point.

The ONLY difference in the batches was the yeast. So, is harvested yeast just ****in awesome or has something gone awry?

My roommate thought it would be a great idea to use my SG tube as a tee for a cupcake bat (drunk on my home brew, irony I know....) and as a result I have no way to measure the gravity of my current batch.

Just give it 3 weeks from pitch. That will give it time to clean up and clear and get a graduated test tube when you buy your next ingredeints. I will bottle my patersbier Tuesday or Thursday. Can't wait to try it.
