I know I here people say "Don't fear the foam," but tonight is my first time sanitizing my better bottles with it for fermentation.
I an making 2 things tonight, EdWort's Apfelwein, and Austin Home Brews Pumpkin Ale.
Does everone really just rack wort or apple juice right on top of the foam? While my pumpkin and grains are steeping, I mixed up the juice for the apfelwein, and when I poured it in the BB, the top is still filled with the foam. I know I have seen people do this on youtube, and read it here, but do you really leave all that foam?
Thanks,
Dave

Yup. You can even make cool animal shapes with it.
Seriously, the foam is fine. Even provides some nutrients for your yeast.

If you look in this thread of mine you will see pics of us having racked right on top of the foam and the cool shapes it makes.

I've been told I need to contribute more to actual brewing threads. I'm spent now. Time for a nap.

And Dave, you are quite welcome.
