Posted in thread: Wort sat for 2 days before boil on 10-28-2014 at 09:12 AM
Exact same thing happened to me last weekend. I had the added bonus of having to put my kettle
outside as the missus did not want a pot full of wort in the kitchen. Took a reading after the
mash and b...

My Conan in action. Weirdest fermentation I've ever seen. The airlock is chugging along nicely
