Hey Guys, this is my first stab at brewing and im kinda of stuck after searching the boards.
OK, Im brewing a California Pale Ale from Home Brew Outlet and everything seemed to be fine with my brew after I pitched the yeast. The airlock was getting some action within an hour, but after about 6-8 hours the airlock clogged and nearly turned into a missile(had brown brew bubbles coming out from under the lid). So I unclogged and cleaned it, then after about 15 hours the airlock stopped bubbling and I have a thick layer of sediment at the bottom about an inch 1 1/2. Is this typical, did I mess up my brew, or did my yeast die out?
6lb malt kit with 2 oz of hops
5 gal of brew
Rehydrated yeast at 75-80f for 15min
Pitched into wort at 80f
OG was 1064
After 24hrs SG is 1021
Fermenter temp is 74f
