It's up to 68F now ... just wondering when the stuff will start spewing.
Ended up yielding almost 6.5 gallons from my batch so I separated out a half gallon into a 1 gallon carboy.. tested the SG tonight in the smaller carboy and the gravity has already hit 1.014 from a starting point of 1.094 and it has only been 3 days.
The larger 6 gallon carboy has been quite the show.. ended up top cropping almost 200ml of pure yeast from the blow off. I have never fermented a beer at 83F before, but damn it makes the yeast eat through those sugars.
