So all in all for my first batch I'd say nothing was a success.
If your scraping the whole thing...my advice would be to empty the wort and save the grain...fix your manifold, put grain back in with hot water, let sit for an hour and see if it works. In regards to your flame, orange means to much oxygen, try and adjust where the gas line goes in.

Me and a friend brewed this two days ago, dialed back to 5.5 gallons. Hit all our targets on the dot. Usually when I do a hefe yeast I have crazy strong fermentation. This time it was bubbling away at about 2 burps a second through a 1.85"ish blow off tube, but no crazy krausen on the top, maybe .25" of it for two days in a 6.5gal carboy. Almost no krausen left as of right now and a nice yeast cake on the bottom. Going to take a reading later to see how much the gravity changed and go ahead with adding the limeade tomorrow.

All yeast act different, even ones from the same strain....however I would make sure you are fermenting at the correct internal temperature, because this yeast gets real slow when it's too cold.

Didnt get around to a reading, but went ahead and added the Limeade, bubbling started back up in a hour.

As for internal temp 76*F at night, and about 79*F during the day.

Once this second phase of krausen dissipates I'll do a actual reading to see how it looks. Looks like beer, smells like beer, all good in my book so far.

EDIT: SG was 1.046 and after 5 days down to 1.012. Which includes the addition of Simply Limeade. Flavor is subtle banana with a refreshing lime flavor. Smell is mildly appealing, and color is limeade. Should be ready to bottle between the 15th and 18th. The yeast cake is the coolest part about this recipe, yeast then lime pulp then more yeast. Still amazed that my fermentation didn't start off as vigorous as previous hefe's.

I finally made this beer tonight, the gravity sample smelled very limey.

Fireslayer do you keg or bottle? Curious because mine has no head retention, but it is still fairly young in the bottles. Super tasty though.
