Ahh I love a good futurama reference. Where did this win gold? I was looking to make a mild to build up a yeast cake for a barley wine but I may just do this, with blackjack, and hookers.

It won gold at the M.A.L.T. competition in Montreal. It was actually based on a mild recipe I had which I bumped up the maris otter. It is a very easy drinking beer so try to control your fermentation to not produce too many esters.

Oh and byte my 8-bit metal ass. That's byte with a y. Hehehe...

So I followed the recipe almost exactly this past Saturday and put it into the carboy and it still isn't showing any signs (bubbling or churning) that the yeast has activated. Should I be worried?

This is my first homebrew and my first all grain in one so maybe I'm jumping the gun?

Yep I jumped the gun, working like a champ on day 4!
