    i think my main, most recent concern, was when to stop degassing during the primary. i know
    when racking, you're supposed to have next to no oxygen contact, so i fgued you would want to
    stop stirring ...

    i didnt boil, i used campden tablets. so everything was basically at room temp when i mixed and
    pitched. it seems going along fine, after i pitched that second wyeast pack, and added some
    nutrient a f...

    yeah, it's definitely been a pretty fun and interesting experience so far. i'll probably do a
    few things a little differently next time, but i think it's moving along okay, and i'm sure
    it'll turn out...

    thanks for the tip.i had planned on the long haul from the beginning, and i'm by no means in
    any hurry. it's just my first run and i had read some stuff on degassing but nothing really on
    when to stop...

    ferment now, and i don't really want to upset it too much. wondering when i should stop
    degassing to just ...

    bubbling every ...

    i used 16 lbs of honey: 11 lbs of it was a "light amber, natural bee honey", and 5 lbs of it
    was a "natural wildflower honey." i bought these before i realized the local homebrew shop
    actually carried...

    so it's been bubbling for about 24 hours now, but it is still only about once every 15 to 20
    seconds. it seems like it would have picked up a bit by now [48hrs after pitching the 2nd pack
    of yeast]. i...
