Just brewed this last night and fermentation is already underway. Can't wait to sample it from the carboy in a couple weeks!

Well I went ahead and split the difference and diluted it down to an OG of 1.135 yesterday before anything started. Still a very slow start with the fermentation front though. Still haven't seen a single bubble in the airlock, but finally tonight as I went to aerate it for the second time today, the gravity was down to about 1.120. So it's starting, but slow. Weird no bubbles in the airlock, but once opened the lid it sure looked like something was going on with some dark brown crud on top of LOTS of light brown bubbles... And just to confirm, I should keep aerating it twice daily until I get to the 1/3 sugar break? Just a bit different from beer world.

This was it after tonight's aeration!
Thanks again! Cheers!

Attachment 147367Just whipped up a 4L batch of these tonight. I'm hoping I don't end up with a krausen fountain.
