Cool guys! The internet's been down here for the past 3 days so I haven't been able to post. I meant to save a little wort to capture some new yeast out in the country from the batch I did a week ago, but I forgot when the time came!!!!! Grrrr! So mad!

My beer is starting to show signs of floaties. Not sure what to make of it, pellicle or yeast. I'm thinking the latter.
(Edit: 3/25/08 - Actually, I think they are hop particles.)

My beer is cranking away slowly, its passing a CO2 bubble every 15 seconds, temp is 66F. 2.5 days from pitching ~ 60hrs

I was hoping for a raging ferment.

I guess one bubble every 15s is not bad.

Since I don't have stoppers to fit my 1 gallon bottles mine is just covered with some sanitized aluminum foil but the ferment was pretty vigorous up until about yesterday. The krausen has gone down a bit but there are still tons of bubbles coming up in little strings all over. The fermentation has strangely started producing very little aroma. The fruit and floral smells that were there are now all but gone.

Hey quick update. My wild wheat cranked away slowly for 5 days, stopped for three days and is now cranking away. Something else took over.

Its got some weird krausen going but I think most of the yeast is on down on the bottom.

All I can say is "Freakin' Awesome!".

No Kidding. The correct answer is D. She forgot to tuck the balls.
