Currently fermenting a NB Patersbier with Wyeast Trappist High Gravity. It's been going strong
over the past 2 days, but now the bubbles are down to one every 5-10seconds. The only thing I
can think o...

Yeah, I definitely started losing my composure a bit once the straining issue happened. I was a
little less strict about the sanitation of my wyeast packet, and in between it being slippery
and me bei...

Anyone have a brew day so bad that even the thought of beer makes you want to smash something?

I just brewed an extract IPA on 12/21, and during the first 3 days of fermentation the airlock
was actively farting away and some nice heady krausen had formed. Now, last night we had a
