Default 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

I do it in buckets so never get a good look. If you did it in a bucket, you wouldn't be worrying.....wait it out

looks like you got lots of protein in the jar. 6-row can do that. i don't see anything to worry about

I've never used that exact yeast, but the English/British yeast strains I've used from white labs have all looked slightly different from most other strains, with WLP002 English Ale Yeast being very chunky. So what your seeing could be a result if the yeast you used.

Huh?


That's one strange looking fermentation, but as mentioned above it's probably just fine.

That looks like some big yeast floccs and proteins, since you only pitched it yesterday I believe its very unlikely for anything other than the normal fermentation to be happening there. It looks pretty chunky for sure, but its probably fine.

Thanks men. Day 2 is already looking more homogenous.

What an awesome hobby.

Sorry if I scared you when you posted this on the recipe page, it was just that I never saw anything like that before! At least in my beers. It is good to know that others think it is just fine though as I would have been freaking out if that was my beer
