That is very reassuring, Emptied the bucket a bit and could not believe the taste had changed in four days, this beer will be great once ready.

How long did you keep it in bottle or keg before drinking it?

No worries. Happened to me a lot before I eventually switch to blow off tubes for peace of mind. If it spilled outside, that means you have positive pressure from the inside, so that much lessens the chance of something nasty getting in. And anyway, by now fermentation is very active so risk of infections are low. Don't worry about yeast neither. There is a HUGE amount left, probably 99.9% of it.
That beer will be awesome.

That abbey ale is a very prolific yeast, it sent a lot of material thru my blow off tube.

Thanks I like to read that. This is only my second brew so everything is new and bewildering. I appreciate your feedback and assistance.
Cheers

What yeast did you use? Mine still needs another 2 weeks in the fermenter before I can bottle it. I'm glad to hear that it tastes very close to the real thing. Keep us updated.

I used WLP 530, it was very active for 3 weeks. Enjoy your beer.

I'm brewing a slightly modified version of this tomorrow. I basically just rounded up my grainbill.
