Pics! Help, wait it out or toss?

This was my third batch. First two are great.

5.0 gal. This one went according to recipe, mash was a little high to start (158 for first couple mins) otherwise went well. 90 minute mash as it was BIAB, preboil grav 1.020. 80 minute boil per recipe suggestion. The recipe is 6lb 2row, 1.8lb flaked corn, 0.5lb minute rice a la Biermuncher Cream of three crops. I added 0.5oz extra hops at 5 mins. Whrilfloc at 10mins. Chilled in 14mins with immersion chiller. Oxygenated with 90seconds of oxygen at 0.5 litre per minute flow. Pitched Wyeast British Ale as it's what I had on hand. Sanitized everything to death with StarSan.

Woke up this morning to the craziest carboy I've ever seen. Bubbling well, not a huge krausen like my first two batches.

Wondering if any of the veterans round here can give me some input.

thanks kindly!

HBT rocks .

Sorry the pic is sideways, tried 5 times uploading, changing aspects, re-saving etc

Thanks men. Day 2 is already looking more homogenous.

What an awesome hobby.

Day 5 in primary. Settling out well. Thinking of racking to secondary at day 8-10. Gravity today 1.010.

Got a black IPA in mind for next brew. Searched around and the Stone XI clone seems to be a hit. Anyone have a dark IPA recipe that really rocked?

Just bottled yesterday. Cleared up nicely. I moved to secondary after 9 days and dry hopped with an ounce of east kent goldings as I've been on a hop craze recently. Tasted great, grav 1.008. Gonna be a long three weeks

10 days after bottling. Already carbed and glorious.

2 months bottle conditioned. Doesn't get much clearer than this.

**Sidenote** Stone 11th Aniv Clone recipe on HBT is rediculous. Wish I could have brewed 25gal
