Super thick Krausen
 
3 Attachment(s)

So this brew was the first time I used starsan. There was a moderate amount of foam in the carboy when I racked the beer into it. Once the carboy was filled and put in the fermenting chamber, there was about 2" of foam on top of the soon to be beer. I figured it would be good to help thwart nasties and from what I read isnt a big deal. This has been fermenting for 8 days now and the krausen hasnt fallen. it just looks like super thick foam.

Im not horribly worried, but does this look out of the ordinary? my last four brews I sanitized with idophor and after a few days the krausen fell and the top looked fairly plain with the exception of a few CO2 bubbles.

thoughts?
