Very cool... Im pretty patient, but at the same point I just kicked my first batch in the kegerator...Looks like I need a bigger (or another) ferm chamber.
I also started this batch for the first 4 days at 64*. I did that with my last batch and it was super clean. I just bumped it up to 66* and in a week or so go up to 70 ish to finish and clean up. Then dry hop for a week and cold crash before kegging...
So, when your beers look like this, does the krausen ever completely fall, or are you racking from under the foamy layer? If it is still kind of thick when it comes time to dry hop, should I poke a hold in it to drop the pellets in, or just dump them in on top of it?
