Uhh, ok... Firstly, it's funny your yeast was a blank package, my 2 Black Rock kits had
Cooper's yeast. I'd guess it's Cooper's, just repackaged but who knows.Concerning the krausen,
that's not unlike...

I did Cooper's english bitter cut in half (so effectively a toucan/2can) with no sugar. It was
